Welcome back to the Vermachtnis
legacy, a family that is never lacking in
kids. This chapter will be following the
new heiress of generation 8, Veronica, in
college, and then taking a look at all of
the spares’ families.
Three of Veronica’s siblings
dropped out, and the other two –
Valerie and Vanessa – will be
joining her at the Greek house as
soon as all three can get pledged.
The first order of business is getting Veronica into Urele Ara Hoh.
Debbie, the placeholder, hits it off with Veronica pretty quickly and
Veronica is soon pledged and moved in. Amusingly, when I first
played Debbie, Veronica’s grandmother, Lexie, and her intended
spouse, streaker Chris Phelps, were still hanging around in the
Debbie influences Veronica during
her pledge period to talk to
Chris, and they seem to do okay. I’ve
been trying to get Chris in the legacy
for a few generations now, but at
first it was hard to catch her, and
now that they know her, it’s never
been the right time or sim.
However, once I am in control of
Veronica again, I realize that she and
Chris have zero chemistry. They can
have nice conversations, but that’s not
enough for a spouse of my legacy sim.
Even with Lexie playing romantic music
in the background, nothing was
stirring. Oh well, there’s one more
chance to get Chris married in – to one
of Veronica’s future children.
I briefly considered using the matchmaker ball, but since I try to play
this legacy as old-school as possible (minus keeping score, of
course), I decided against it in the main line, although I used it for
spares. Instead, Veronica makes a short call . . .
“HELP! EMERGENCY!!! FIRE! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT SINCE WE
ARE NOT USING THE MATCHMAKER BALL. FIRE!”
“. . . and that’ll be a considerable fine. I hope you’ve learned your
“Thanks for the lecture, but you’re not really hot enough.”
“I said, ‘Yes sir! My apologies!’”
“. . . and I hope you’ve learned your lesson. We don’t want any
more false alarms from you.”
“Wow! Nope, I won’t be calling the fire station again.”
“I’m glad I impressed upon you the seriousness of your actions.”
“Yeah, that was definitely it. So, I won’t call the fire station, but
can I call you sometime?”
Looks like we may have a candidate!
After her spate of false alarms, Veronica focuses on getting her
sisters pledged and moved in.
Veronica then focuses on her
LTW, which is to have 20 best friends.
She starts by calling all the people
she already knows and befriending
them, then she picks random people
from the college directory. Unlike her
mother, who was terrible at phone
conversations, Veronica has the gift
of gab and makes friends easily.
One of the people she’s been calling is the good-looking
firefighter, Ericka Enriquez. By the first time they meet in person as
friends, there’s definitely a fire burning, but no firefighter could have
quenched it. Ericka and Veronica have three bolts and greet for the
first time by making out.
Ericka and Veronica’s relationship is a
whirlwind romance. They had
chatted on the phone for quite a
while before Veronica invited Ericka
over, so everything seemed to
Vanessa has met a significant other of
her own, meanwhile. His name is
Randy, and they too hit it off quickly.
Valerie meets a fellow that she gets along with well, a guy named
Zeeshan. They greet amicably and start their date.
The date is interrupted by Chris trying to lure Zeeshan away by flaunting
Zeeshan is undeterred, and the date goes swimmingly. By
the end, they’ve fallen in love, and all this dating stuff has
made Valerie hungry, lol.
“What do you mean you’re as cute as a ladybug? That doesn’t even
make sense. And anyway, who told you that?”
“Well, the controller seems to think I am. Cute, that is. I added the
“Maybe, but I’m cute, too!”
Meanwhile, Valerie paints a portrait of Veronica for the
library, and Vanessa instantly celebrates a photobooth woohoo
by selling flowers. She’s been working on a few more
Here’s the finished portrait, along with Sasha’s and Palmer’s.
There’s room for one more above the bookcases – the last sim
that will ever go through Urele Ara Hoh.
It’s the second semester of
freshman year and Veronica is
working hard at making friends.
The glasses see a lot of duty, as
does the phone.
“I’m so glad you could come on this date, Ericka. Ever since I met you after
that false alarm, I knew there was nothing false about us . . . you’re
perfect for me, and we’re perfect together. Will you be my wife?”
“Oh my god, Veronica, is that a ring?! Yes, yes, of course! You’re right. I
can’t imagine spending the rest of my life with anyone else!”
Their happy moment is interrupted by the waiter dumping
Veronica’s order all over her.
“I love you.”
“I love you more!”
“I love you most!”
“Sigh . . . I could just sit here forever, staring into your eyes . . .”
“. . . on second thought, maybe we should go inside.”
Bad things finally stop happening
on the date, and Veronica and
Ericka spend an enjoyable
evening dancing inside the club.
By the end of the night, they’re
locked in each other’s
arms, slowly swaying and
staring into each other’s eyes.
This is true love.
The next day after the
date, Veronica works on making
friends with my simself.
Unsurprisingly, she is rather
attracted to the video games. I like
the Vermachtnises to know
simRoxy because she makes a
horrible guest at weddings and it’s
really funny to me how antisocial
she is, despite having some nice
“Oh my god, what happened?”
“It’s ok, great-great-uncle (?) Marc. Chris just spent another evening
playing pinball all night. She does this all the time.”
She does, too. Chris regularly passes out at the Greek house. Girl
doesn’t know her limits.
Veronica continues to make best
friends, including the first
Marc, and some bunny man.
Totally normal lineup, that.
In between dating and making friends, Veronica does
manage to do some work, too.
Some police officer and Carrie Vermcachtnis, the first alien
born in my game and the daughter of a second-gen spare, also
Finally, while considering the newest set of friendship glasses in
the house, Veronica makes her 20th best friend with someone who
apparently ran away before I could get a picture of them AND I
missed the aspiration points and only captured the influence
points. Go me. Regardless, Veronica is permaplat and it’s only the
first half of sophomore year! Her next lifetime want is to have 6
grandchildren, which will definitely happen, even if it is a while
away at this point.
Even though heiress Veronica has been getting most of the
attention, Valerie and Vanessa have been keeping busy.
Valerie has become very enamored of the house
mascot, Winnipeg the womrat. Vanessa, on the other
hand, prefers more productive uses of her free time and
does a lot of crafting.
Once Veronica reached her LTW, not
much else happened except for some
dates with Ericka, so I rushed through the
rest of their college career. I have some
plans for Veronica, and they involve a long
generation, so I was ready to get it
started. The three girls graduated summa
cum laude, Valerie and Vanessa in art, and
Veronica in philosophy. Congrats, girls!
All three of the girls grew up into two
different colors of the same top. I
found that very amusing. Now let’s
check in with all the spares . . .
Vanessa moved into a little place and immediately invites her boyfriend
Randy over. To my great annoyance, he tells her what a cool girl she is and
that he wants to set her up on a blind date.
That is not good boyfriend behavior, Randy. Vanessa declined, and moved
Randy in and proposed to him instead. Thankfully he didn’t offer to find her
a different fiancé and try to weasel out of it.
Vanessa and Randy had a very flowery wedding right outside their
Despite Randy trying to pawn his girlfriend off on some
unsuspecting person, they make a good couple and were very happy
Randy brought home the flu from work, and it isn’t long before
Vanessa has it too. Unluckily, she also is pregnant, and she was sick for
most of her pregnancy, so she mostly stayed in bed or on the couch as
much as possible.
Both parents finally got healthy in
time for the babies to be born.
That’s right! Vanessa went and
had twins. They are a boy named
Jacob and a girl named Jennifer.
Jacob and Jennifer grew into cute little toddlers. Jennifer got her
father’s blond hair. I’m again rushing through this part because of the
plans I have for Veronica, so each spare will be limited to one
Here’s Jennifer and Jacob as
children. They definitely
have the sleepy-looking eyes
that Vanessa has passed
down from her father, Prof.
Hayden, but like their good-
looking parents, they are
When pleasure sim Valerie
moved in, all she wanted to do
was play computer games and
With a little nudging from me, she
invited Zeeshan over and moved him
in. He quickly proposed, and Valerie
was happy to accept.
They had a quiet little wedding in a corner of their home.
Here’s the happy couple. Zeeshan has the same face as Sinjin
Hues, so I’m interested to see how their child turns out.
Valerie again wanted to goof off, dancing her pregnancy
away, but she eventually gave birth to a little girl that they
Debbie the placeholder moved in with Vincent when she
dropped out of Academie Le Tour. They’re both romance sims, so
they hit it off very quickly and they were soon sharing a first kiss
and a proposal.
They had a quiet ceremony, but
the wedding didn’t exactly go as
Vincent decided to be difficult
and roll a fear of marriage right
before they got married. Grr.
Thank goodness this isn’t the
Vincent and Debbie make a cute couple. They got pregnant right
away, and they avoided rolling any fears of the baby. However, I
didn’t like their house and I had them move to a new place.
Upon the move, they both rolled a fear of having a baby, and
while playing catch outside, with the welcome wagon in the
background, Debbie gave birth, realizing both parents’ fears.
These two are just determined to be difficult.
Regardless, they had a very cute son who got Sasha’s red hair (yay
red hair!). His name is Calvin.
Calvin unsurprisingly grew into a cute kid. He is
very active and playful and gave his parents a
lot of trouble, especially considering they
weren’t thrilled to have had him.
Nonetheless, they loved him very much.
Victoria met a cute gearhead named Clarence, and the two shy
things flirted awkwardly for a while before falling in love.
Clarence let his ponytail down
and put on some normal
clothes, and surprised Victoria
with a ring. They wasted no
time in tying the knot.
Somehow, in their quick courtship, they avoided ever kissing. Not
really sure how that happened, and apparently the wedding kiss
didn’t count, so they had their first kiss after their wedding. That’s
weird, but a little cute.
Here’s Victoria and Clarence. Like Vanessa’s husband
Randy, Clarence has a Remington face, so I expect cute kids.
Victoria quickly got pregnant and went into labor three days
later, despite never putting on a maternity outfit. That flat stomach
is definitely no indicator of how pregnant she was because . . .
. . . they had triplets! Their son is
named Tommy and the girls are
named Rachel and Mary.
Mary, Tommy, and Rachel grew
into very cute kids.
Victoria and her family lived happily ever after.
Finally we’ve come to the last spare. Vance met a vacation sim
named Marissa, who was very, very pretty.
Vance and Marissa got off to a
great start and soon had their first
As soon as they fell in love, Vance
knew Marissa was the one and
proposed to her.
They had a quick summer wedding in the backyard.
Vance is pleasure and Marissa is romance, so they get along great.
They also make a very cute couple, in my opinion.
Marissa soon get pregnant, just like nearly every spare’s wife out
there, and Vance was elated to meet their child. Marissa, despite
being a romance sim, was also happy. Good job, Marissa.
“Well, I am meeting someone new. That makes me happy.”
“Okay, now I’m unhappy.”
The romance sims in these spare families are giving me such a
tough time this go-around.
Yay! Triplets again! Just what Marissa wanted, I’m sure! To be fair, I
would guess that most women in labor with triplets are not
They had two boys named
Theodore and Tyreese, and a little
girl named Tessa.
Theo, Ty, and Tess grew into
adorable children, though I think
the boys have an edge on their
Thus concludes Vance’s story, and the end of our look into the lives
of the generation 8 spares.
Check back next time to see what big plans I have for Veronica and Ericka.
Also, although I didn’t know it last chapter when she was adopted, I finally
found out the new puppy’s name – it’s Alison.
Alison, Veronica, Ericka, Sasha, Prof. Hayden, and Lexie will all be waiting
to entertain you next time with the Vermachtnis family.
