Congrats to Mac and for she forever live- literally.  ;)
Loved her misfortune at the surgeries. I think Zahra should back off from the surgeries for a bit. Maybe read a book or two about them. Practice using a stuffed doll.

Thanks everyone! The surgeries were pretty funny! because I needed 3 for Zahra to get promoted she may have inadvertently misdiagnosed a couple of sims.... but hey! Every surgeon needs practise, right?  :P Because she has the Professional Slacker award now she can only get demoted to the start of the orange bar and by completing all the daily tasks while at work and with the kick in from the Entrepreneurial trait and the negotiate a bonus interaction she was back on track pretty quickly. So, I think I've got her career sussed, she should max it in time for her adult birthday. Unless something goes horribly wrong...which, being a dynasty, is very likely. lol
I think the best way forward with the doctor career is to only diagnose sims if it one of the daily requirements/tasks. You can fill up the green metre just as quickly by running tests etc etc. So it's not actually necessary to diagnose a sim to get a promotion. In fact, I think it's better not to as Zahra can still only slim down the possible illnesses to 3 and this is her at L7 of the career. It's still too easy to misdiagnose and then have to scramble madly to make up the lost progress. Although it's a balance between wanting the performance boost that a correctly diagnosed sim gives you!
I still alternate between joining her and sending her alone as once the tasks needed for the next promotion are done she is often better 'working hard' alone and snagging the next promotion that way. I use 'renew wedding vows' with Julius so that the tense moodlet is outweighed by the happy one so she can actually work hard for the entire shift.
I guess once she has maxed the career I'll be able to have a bit more fun in this career but for now my aim is just to get it maxed as quickly as possible.  :)

Chapter 96: Welcome Visitors



Dude: Son!





Dude: It's so good to see you.





Dude: Come inside, Jasmine will want to see you too. How are you? Are you ok?





Blaize: It's so good to be here dad. I'm fine...it's a little strange, but I'm ok.





Dude: I miss you so much son but seeing you again, knowing you're ok...it's priceless.
Blaize: I know dad, I feel the same way.





Jasmine: Blaize! Oh so good to see you!
Blaize: You too sis, you too.





Jasmine: So, can you stay? Are you able to stay?
Blaize: Truthfully? I just don't know. Sometimes we're called to the Greater Beyond and we can't come back and visit from there.
Jasmine: But you're ok.
Blaize: I'm totally fine...if not a little see-through.





Blaize: It's actually nothing to be scared off. It doesn't hurt...it's just sad leaving you all behind. But boy, didn't we have a great life altogether? Eh?
Dude: We sure did!





Mac: It's just like old times watcher.
It sure is. It's so good to see Blaize again. It's made me feel so much better.
Mac: Me too.
Blaize: So how's your painting going Zahra?
Zahra: Good thanks, got a few tucked away for my museum pieces, hopefully I'll get a few done each night so I have lot's to choose from.





Mac: Oh Mal! Darling!
Malakai: Mackenzie, my love!
Mac: I have missed you so much but you must go and see your grand son. He's adorable.
Malakai: I will my love, it's so good to hold you...





Hiya Caleb.
Hiya watcher.
I've got someone I think you should meet.
K then.





Caleb: Granddad!
Mal: Oh! What a big handsome boy you are!





Mal: I love you Caleb.
Caleb: I love you too granddad.





Mal: Say, you're pretty good at your math!
Caleb: Thanks! my teacher says I'm one of the top students.
Mal: Way to go!





Caleb: Thanks for helping me granddad, see you next time.
Mal: You're welcome Caleb. Be good at school!
Caleb: Always! *grin*





Zahra: Oh dad, it's so good you're here.
Mal: I'm so sorry for ruining your wedding day.





Zahra: Oh dad! How could you even think that! I was so sorry I waited so long...you nearly missed...everything.
Mal: I'm really proud of you love. You are doing so well and have such a great son!
Zahra: That means so much to hear you say that dad.





Mal: I hope I can visit often, but in case I don't, know that I love you and that I'm ok...you are doing a great thing here Zahra and I know you will succeed.





Zahra: Oh dad <teary>
Mal: That's my girl. You're stronger than you know love.





Zahra: I hope they both come back.
So do I Zahra, so do I.





Caleb: *laughing* That's deliciously revolting.





Woah! Are you trying to burn us all down!
Caleb: No watcher...lol, it's just pyrotechnics, pretty harmless.
Hmmm.





Caleb: Hmm, that's unexpected...
Well, you better scoot to school hun, only 5 mins before it's time to go.
Caleb: K watcher.





Have a great day!
Caleb: Will do.





You off too?
Dude: Yep, wanna join me?
I can't, the rest of us are going fishing...you should join us once you're finished.
Dude: K, see you all later then.
It was good seeing Mal and Blaize eh?
Dude: Better than you'll ever know.

Chapter 97: Fishing Trip



Sooo, we're at the library...to fish?
Zahra: No silly, to research gardening so we can become focused... helps to catch more fish.
Yeah, I knew that...was just testing you.
Zahra: <snort>





Zahra: I wonder where Julius got to.
He's just coming now. I think 'cos he's a lazy sim he just wanders everywhere. Although for a lazy sim he sure works hard.





Oh my gosh! First catch of the day! Bam! Well done Julius.
Julius: I've got my uses watcher.
Zahra: *giggle*





EEeek! cripes! That scared the plumbob outta me!
Zahra: Yeah! It's one mean fish for sure.
Julius: Only one more fish needed though and you've completed the angling ace.
Zahra: True, I think I might need to go somewhere special for that last elusive fish though.





Wow Jasmine! That's your seventh angelfish...wow girl, you really are a fishing pro!
Jasmine: Thanks watcher.





There you are! How was school?
Caleb: Hi watcher, hi Mabel, just fine thanks.





Be back in a sec...
Caleb: K.
Woah....sorry...how embarrassing. I didn't realize anyone was in here. <blush>





Caleb: Could you help me with my sentence structure Mr Reaper? Please?
Grim: Sure.





Whoop! There's someone looking pretty mad at you Grim!
Grim: Tell him to join the queue.
*snicker*





Caleb: I don't know why everyone gets all antsy about you Mr Reaper, I think you're really nice.





Grim: Aww, thanks Caleb. I guess it's because you're basically immortal, or will be one day. Sims who are going to die don't like me very much.





Grim: Hey, did I tell you about the fish I caught the other day? ...





Dude: Sooo..You hanging with my great grandson eh? Not filling his head with supernatural nonsense?
Grim: As if Winston.
Dude: Hmm, well, it's probably better you don't come down fishing. My daughter's still pretty mad at you.
Grim: <shudder>





So how's the fishing going?
Julius: Good.
Zahra: I think it's actually getting better now that it's nearly dark.
Cool.





Gosh! Just look at all those fish!
Dude: Just look at them all swimming away! Far out! When will you remember to whisper near the fish?
Opps, sorry!




Zahra: Isn't it lovely here at night?
Julius: Not as lovely as you my sweet.
Zahra: Aww





Woo! What's the count now?
Jasmine: Umm, I think that makes it twelve.
Great work team!
Zahra: "team" *snicker*





Another excellent catch *grin*
Dude: Stow it watcher...hasn't been the same since you yelled and shouted earlier.
Yeah yeah, blame it on me.
Dude: I'm going to!





Oh Jasmine! Huney! You look so tired. Why didn't you say?
Jasmine: Oh I'm ok, I'm tired all the time now.
I think it's home time. You need to rest Jasmine.
Mac: Well, it was a great fishing trip.
For sure, thirteen all up.
Jasmine: That's a lucky number for some.
Any number of angelfish is a lucky number!

So many updates!
Did Grim get an embarrassed moodlet when you, I mean the Watcher, walked in on him in the loo?
The visit by Mal and Blaize was so moving! <3

Enjoyed your insights about an heir doing the Doctor career.
So many sims in your household are/were around the same age!
Wonderful updates!

What great screenshots! The last one with the moon is really stunning. So nice to see Blaize and Mal, lets hope that they stick around for a while. It was nice that Mal could finally meet his grandson too. Great work as usual!

Thanks so much everyone. I really enjoy it when I take all the Hollingsworths out fishing. It's such a nice break from all the skilling etc. Zahra actually completed the angling ace aspiration with the wolf eel. The actual aspiration had completed some time ago but it was incorrect as at that point Zahra had only caught 14 fish. I was keeping one of every fish she caught mounted on the wall just so I knew when she had actually caught all 20 fish. What I had forgotten that the angelfish was in a bowl...way too important to mount!
So here's her completed aspiration.




I seem to have something a bit weird going on with the aspirations at the moment as the renaissance sim aspiration completed on Dude even though he has only ever had one career... All a bit annoying and frustrating so I'm going to have to be really careful about not clicking on any other aspirations with my heirs or it will be a fail again. Basically I have planned out each generation and so the 'spare aspirations' have already been completed by Dude and Mac. If any other aspirations glitch out and complete then it will be game over. Bummer. Still, it hasn't got to that point yet so I'm still in with a chance!~  :)

I looked up cheats yesterday as a way of undoing the completion of Renaissance Sim.  (This same thing foiled my last, uh seventh, dynasty attempt but unlike your sim, my sim had actually completed the aspiration and I accidentally clicked it.)
While there's a simple cheat to remove the Professorial trait, removing reward points can only be done 100 points at a time, so you'd have to do it 50x.  :-X
