So was this story too angsty and did it jump the shark at the end? I would love criticism, I would like for this to be good for the future and past works.
This essay will explore the possibilities and implications of the simulation hypothesis using The Sims 4 as a reference. It will firstly address the issue of whether or not the Sims are actually part of a computer simulation, and if so, what type of simulation it may be. Would a particularly bright Sim be able to prove that she was in a simulation? And what would it mean for the player and the game if that proof was uncovered? It stands to reason that for a Sim to be aware of the simulated nature of their existence, they must be capable of thought. Does this also mean your Sims could be conscious beings? Are Sims self-aware? This train of thought opens up big-picture questions in regards to our own reality. If the Sims are all part of a computer simulation controlled by us, the player, how do we know that we ourselves aren’t also part of a computer simulation? If so, what kind of simulation would we belong to? What would be the reason for that simulation to exist? Although there are a multitude of possible answers, the simplest could be found in considering our reasons for playing The Sims in the first place. It’s also important to consider the religious implications of running simulation games like The Sims. What is our relationship with the Sims that we control? We created them, we built the world that they inhabit, and if we desire we can make them do whatever we want. We have complete omniscience over their world, being able to observe any space at any time. We can end their lives at a whim. Therefore, when playing The Sims, are we like god? The final point of this essay will consider The Sims in relation to Plato’s allegory of the cave, which will be explained further on. The allegory links The Sims to a number of science fiction texts that deal with simulation, most notably The Matrix, and provides some insight into how different types of simulation might function.
This is a short story I made in the Tale Foundry group. They wanted the story to stay below 350 words and because of that, I had to cut a lot out. Here is that uncut version, our at least the parts I remembered to put back in.
After a father's 4th near-fatal heart attack, he once again meets with death. Now he must decide again whether to leave into a peaceful afterlife or struggle to live for his daughter's sake.

I wrote this story for another publication and it didn't get accepted so here it is on here. What can I do to improve, is this really bad or just okay?
The story details the journey of boy who seeks to the power of magic, a skill lost to myth and forgotten by most. He's on an expedition to one of the last places of the old magical world, the Aion Temple.
In this world monsters and creatures of myth are real and when they were reveled to the world by a certain event, the world governments united to eliminate this threat and at the end of this brutal conflict most creatures were killed, the others were enslaved or studied. The enslaved had only one job and that is to kill the ones left in the world, the old gods.
At the current time the few gods left are on isolated islands. The world government sent ships to the locations and each of them has a team of 5 mythics to kill the gods on the islands. On one of those ships in addition to the mythics, there is a boy drafted into this military operation by his grandfather named Hashi.
