“Did you hear, Hayden? Your children got into private school!”“Seriously? That’s what you’re going to gossip about?”“What’s wrong with that?”Oh, mean sims and your incessant gossip. Welcome back to the finalchapter of the Vermachtnis Legacy for this generation. Let’s see the lastthree children – big-eyed Veronica and twins Valerie and Victoria – grow upand then there will be an heir poll at the end. Happy reading!
“Okay guys, we’ve got twins to raise and all of us are getting pretty oldfor our current lifestages. Now on my count, let’s drink.Hey, wait, why did you all drink before me?!”
Palmer seems to be the most invigorated by the elixir andbecomes a nurturing machine for the girls. He’s always thereto tuck them in and change their diapers while the rest of theadults run around the house being stupid.
Veronica is still a super-sweet child. Now the only non-baby in the house, she finds ways to amuse herself. Sherolled the want to teach Elroy to come here and did. Ithink it’s funny that kids roll that want and then neverwant to teach the dogs anything else.
Birthday time for the twins! I’m excited to see if either of them got the big eyes.Lexie is at work but Veronica and Palmerare there to help celebrate.
Both of the girls ended up with a lot of Hayden’s facial genes, sono big eyes here. They’re still cute though. I’m so glad we gotat least one kid with the green skin.Valerie, at left, has the personality 10/2/10/10/3.Victoria is 8/2/6/3/8, making her the only other nice simbesides Veronica. All of the kids this generation are super-neatand super-shy and all except Victoria are very active. She’smoderately active though. Lots of energy for cleaning, I guess.
As has become tradition, Valerie and Victoria learn to walk rightthere in the kitchen immediately after their birthday. Lexie made ithome in time to dance with Veronica, even if she did miss thebirthday.
The next day before school, thegirls set about making friends.When Veronica leaves for school,it isn’t long before Valerie andVictoria are best friends.
Elroy got old! That’s . . . kind of all I have to say about it, actually.
Valerie and Victoria need to learn all their skills and theirrelatives are there for them. I’ve been really into havingthe kids play with family members and the Wabbit to buildrelationships too. Val and Vic are very well taken care of.
Um, what are you doing, Veronica?“Practicing my possessed look before I grow up! Either thator I’m about to summon weather like Storm from the X-Men.”Well then. Ok. I once went as Storm for Halloween as a kid,so I approve of that over the possession.
Poor Veronica. Her siblings are all moved out or too young tocelebrate, and all her family members except for her mom are atwork during her birthday. Except Palmer should be home.Hmm. I don’t remember where he was at the moment but hewas probably taking a bath or something. Oh well. Anyway,Sasha was the only one there for Veronica’s birthday.
Here’s Veronica as a teen! I think she turned out pretty nice.She looks a lot like a totally brown version of Sasha. Fittinglyfor such a nice sim, she rolls Family/Popularity. Her lifetimewant is to have 20 Best Friends, just like her great-great-grandmother June.
Hayden at least had a good excuse for missing his daughter’sbirthday. He came home with a promotion to Mad Scientist,making his third LTW. His next is to become a Hall of Famer, butit never came up before he became an elder. Too bad. Three isrespectable, however. He immediately got a different jobbecause I don’t like my sims to have night jobs.
Sasha’s secondary familyaspiration really shinesthrough with her youngestchildren. She loves snugglingand kissing them all the time.
Rather than heading off to collegelike her older siblings, Veronica isstaying around to become anoverachiever to please severalmembers of her family as well asbecause I just like her a lot. She’squite useful to have around too.She studies and works hard andfinds time to fix things and snuggleher little sisters too.
“Where did my pretty hair go?”I’m really baffled by this. Why is part of the uniform for the teendance career default hair? This happened to Sammy in the lastgeneration too. She looks so sad about it too. Regardless,Veronica has joined the dance career and, as a private schoolstudent, starts at the second level. She has all the skills needed,so she should come home with a . . .
. . . demotion? Stupid chance cards. I was going to send her offto college after she became an overachiever, but it looks like wehave at least two more days to go before that happens.
Time for another birthday! Val and Vic are growing up andtheir entire family is there to celebrate. Veronica gets to helpsince she’s a family sim and likes this sort of thing.
This is the best birthday pic I took of them. I guess I was lazythe day I played their birthday, lol. They still look much thesame except Victoria put her hair up.
Veronica is so sweet! Like her uncle Sid, who also had 10nice points, she goes around giving kisses to anyone whois available at the moment. She also tucks in her sisters,even if it is 6 in the morning and Valerie is justoversleeping because she stayed up too late.
Valerie and Victoria set aboutskilling. Valerie might havethe stuck smart milk effectthat sometimes happens, Ithink, because she skills atleast three times as fast asVictoria. Seriously, Valerie gotall her skills to at least 8 andmaxed several while Victoriawas still on her third skill.
So . . . while waiting for Veronica to become an overachiever, sheneeded an aspiration boost so I had her date the newspapercarrier, purely because she was the most convenient teen. I wasn’tgoing to write about it because it wasn’t really relevant, but thenthey ended their date with a kiss, so I guess there goes Veronica’sfirst kiss! Then I had to include the picture. Sims are sounpredictable like that.
Val and Vic go to their first day of school and learn theirhomework skill. The next day, the headmaster is invited overand after an evening of salmon, bathrooms, and small talk, thelast of the Vermachtnis children are accepted into the localacademy.
Like most twins, Valerie andVictoria are pretty close.They like to play catch, whichis always a dangerousendeavor with a mean sim.Not surprisingly, mean littleVal also likes to tell secretsabout family members.That’s not very nice after allyour sister has done for you,Val!
“I’m right here, you guys. Just, you know, mind yourselves.”Seems like Palmer has caught on to the shenanigans his wifehas been up to. She’s still following Hayden around andengaging him in socials whenever possible. She’s not taking itany further, thank god.
Poor Victoria is still skilling while Valerie is off playing. Ithink on top of Val being a quick skiller, Victoria is a reallyslow one. The contrast between them is pretty stark.
Sigh. Zombies in the neighborhood mean that trash can kicksand newspaper thefts are not uncommon, without anyprovocation. The two Zaubes are particularly bad at this, whileMalcolm doesn’t come by much.
“Me and my boring hair are finally an overachiever! Hurray!”Yay!Took you long enough.
One more thing before Veronica leaves for college. She had been playing the instruments a lot and rolled the want to max her music enthusiasm. Since she was so close, I decided to let her do it before she left.Thanks to her big eyes, she makessome of the funniest faces whenshe plays the drums.As you can see from the top pic,she reached the zone and wasready to leave.
Goodbye, Veronica! See you soon! Have fun sitting in thedorm with your siblings!
Palmer tries to keep Lexie busy, but they start having argumentswhen they spend a lot of time together. They’ve both gottenkind of ornery in their old age.
“What a fine form! What beauty! What noble angles andsubtle curves! Such a lovely sight! Truly a treat to the eyes!”You are describing the statue, right, Lexie?
Vic gets in on the secret-telling but she has the good taste to atleast not make it about family members.
Showing off in the bedroom is apretty common activity. I’m a bitmore impressed with headstandsand cartwheels thansomersaults. I also admire theamount of air Valerie hasobtained in the top pic.
Hayden tops some career, but I forgot to write it down. Geez,I’m really falling down on the job in this chapter, guys. Sorry.Anyway, good for you, Hayden. Since he’s knowledge/fortune,he always rolls the want to top the careers and gets a healthyamount of points for it.
We didn’t hold an elder birthday, and Sasha is a day older thanHayden but I wanted them to grow up on the same day, so onceshe grows up right away upon coming home from work, she findsHayden and he grows up too. I can’t believe they’re eldersalready, but this has been kind of a longer generation than usual,since I usually have them pop out the kids and ship ‘em off tocollege as soon as possible.
Hayden and Sasha aged kind of . . . interestingly. Yeah,interesting, let’s go with that. They’re cute together at leastand still have two bolts.
Hayden completes a hefty want by buying and selling realestate. Just like in real life, making huge amounts of moneyquickly is a lot easier if you’re already filthy rich and can affordto throw around big numbers.Please notice Lexie in the background, sulking that Hayden isignoring her.
Aw, poor Palmer. It seems like he didn’t have much time as anelder. Even worse, not a single member of his family came tosee him off. He died in his bedroom, alone except for Grim andthe hula girls. That’s depressing. :( Sorry, Palmer. Youdeserved better.
However, when Elroy goes later that day, everyone exceptVictoria (who is sloooowly skilling in the other room), gathersaround and cries. What the heck is wrong with you sims? Thepatriarch of the family dies and you completely ignore him, butthe animal dies and suddenly you’re inconsolable? Sims! I wasactually pretty angry about this until I remembered I was angryat pixels.
“You should let me stay and haunt them instead of sending meto the cemetery.”I probably should, Palmer. They deserve it, but it’s tradition atthis point. Go join your foremothers and fathers. Have fun inthat great bathtub in the sky.“Fine, whatever. Adios, jerks!”
It’s finally the girls’ birthday and they need an aspiration boost. Since Elroy just passed and they both wanted it, I let them get a puppy. And guess what? I forgot to write the name down and have no idea what I named it! Go me! >:(Of course, they won’t really get toplay with the puppy unless one ofthem is the heiress since they’regoing directly to college aftertheir birthday.
They’re both very pretty. Like nearly all of their siblings, they havetheir dad’s eyes, but they’re still very nice-looking.Valerie rolled Pleasure/Romance with the want to have 50 1st dates.Victoria is Fortune/Popularity and wants to be The Law. Both oftheir LTWs fit really well with their first and second aspirations.
With the cell phones I just plopped in their inventories, the girls callfor their scholarships and then taxis to take them to college. Not onlydo they not even get makeovers, they don’t even get to change intoeveryday clothes before they go!Let’s take a peek at all the kids and then make sure to head over toSiMania to vote for your favorite. Thanks for reading!
Vincent Vermachtnis9/4/9/10/3Romance/Fortune – Become Criminal MastermindThe oldest of the children, Vincent threw up a lot as a babyand toddler. That’s kind of his only defining characteristic.Oh wait, he is a mean sim with an appropriately mean LTW.That’s something.
