The following story was created specifically for submission to the Monthly Simlit Short Story Challenge. At the end of the month there will be polls for readers to vote for their faves, but we ask that you read ALL submissions before voting.
Part 1 – Let’s Meet Todd (see author’s notes at the end for more details about where this is going)
Part 2 and Part 3 make up this series.
Credits: Island Living Yacht by amitaliri is in The Sims 4 Gallery. While not showcased well here, it is definitely worth checking out.
Author’s Notes: This is the start of a series that will grow from this submission.
Step 1 – seen here – create a new character and upload it to the gallery. Create the backstory for this character. FIND TODD HERE in the gallery as Castaway Todd
Step 2 – READ HERE– I will select one of the characters from another writer’s character introduction and will incorporate that Sim into this storyline as an antagonist (creating tension or conflict for Todd)
Step 3 – a third character will be added to the storyline as a protagonist (a supporting character that may help to resolve or smooth over the tension or conflict)
I have ideas brewing already!
Bonus Bio – Meet Castaway Todd (I purposely left him very open for interpretation.)

He seems fun! Can’t wait to see what he gets up to on the island!
Thanks Divan. You definitely DO want to see what he gets up to. Hint Hint 😉
It will be so interesting to see how his antagonist appears on the scene! Is he truly away from it all? Enjoyed Todd LOTS!
Thanks Lisa. You know I say this often, but I really am out to amuse myself, it is just a bonus when someone drops in to read. I definitely have my antagonist entrance planned. Poor Castaway Todd.
OHHH I cannot wait cannot wait!
I love Todd’s expression in that second screenshot! He’s got so much personality. 🙂
lol thanks. I really enjoy taking the time to explore the animations that the game has built in.
I sooo like how Todd story started! ❤
thank you. I’m glad I decided to join in.
I love how the baseball bat is sticking out of the rubbish pile as he’s making a list of his “treasured belongings.” Todd doesn’t seem to be bothered that he’s a cast-a-way. Love him.
this is based on my husband, and yes he definitely approves of himself being in this predicament.
Can’t wait to see where this story will go!
Hopefully Todd isn’t in a situation where it’s more ’be careful what you wish for’ and that island life suits him! Great character!
thanks Mena. He is essentially my husband, who approves of me shipwrecking him 😉
Ha ha ha, aw, that’s amazing! Now I really do hope for a wonderful escape from his job, for him! 😘
Wait, he ran *away* from the catastrophic apocalyptic event? I can’t relate to this man at all. On a more serious note, this is a great premise. Whoever chooses Todd as a protagonist has their work cut out for them, but it’d be a fun worldbuilding experience!
Try living with him in real life LOL (just kidding, totally)
