Welcome back to the Vermachtnis legacy! Last chapter we saw the last
of Veronica and Ericka’s 11 children leave the house. Now they are all in
college, but only three of them are staying and eligible for heir. The
other eight are pictured here. They are (top, left to right) Yves, Yuliana,
Yvonne, Yvette, (bottom, left to right) Yantse, Yumi, Yates, and Yew.
That’s also in descending age order in case you care about such things.
Now let’s meet our potential heirs! We’ll catch up with these eight at
the end of the chapter.
The potentials are Yasmine, Yanichel, and Yuri, pictured above, left to right. They
were chosen for two reasons: 1) They all have large, recessive eyes and 2) They all
have black hair. The eyes are just because I like them, but the hair is because there
is a 50% chance that a black-headed child in this generation is carrying red hair, and
I thought it’d be really neat to at least have a chance at a redhead for generation 10.
Yantse also has large eyes, but she has brown hair, which is why she’s not here. I
didn’t want to wait for an heir poll, so I decided to narrow it down to these three
and then let my sister decide. So who did she pick?
“Yay! It’s me!!”
Yep, she liked Yuri. He is, if you remember, a grilled cheese/romance sim
who wants to eat 200 grilled cheese sandwiches. His personality is
8/2/7/6/4. I’ve done the 200 sandwiches once in this family, but never
with an heir (it was a spare who completed it before, although while she
was living in the main house) so I decided to make it challenging and try
to complete this LTW in college.
Before we can get rolling, the kids
have to get pledged. Carrie the
placeholder pledged all three.
Do you remember those Goofus and
Gallant comics in Highlights? I
always read those at the dentist’s
office. Anyway, one boy was a
model citizen and the other was a
budding degenerate and this was
Why do I mention that? Oh, no
reason really. During the pledge
period, Yasmine responsibly took
care of some bugs that somehow
got into the house from last
generation. Yuri drank juice. Six in a
row, in fact. I think he may be part
Yanichel and Yasmine brush up on
their logic skill and their relationship.
Yuri blows bubbles. Yeah, no
contrast here at all.
Finally Yuri’s time for goofing off is done
and Carrie welcomes her new fellow
Greek house members, which Yasmine
takes as an invitation to nibble on her
neck a little. Carrie is the alien daughter
of a gen. 2 spare, so technically she
shouldn’t be in the main house, but she
was just being a placeholder, so I’m okay
After moving in Yasmine, Yanichel, and Yuri, Carrie dropped out and
wrapped up another loose end. Professor Blake, former fiancé of
Sasha, had been sitting in the sim bin ever since their breakup over
irreconcilable differences. I felt bad about him, so I changed him back
to a romance sim like he was originally, and since Carrie is also a
romance sim, they got along very well. They had a cute little daughter
named Kristen, and now we can ignore them as they live happily ever
Meanwhile, Yuri needs to work on his own happily ever after.
Amazingly, after several generations of trying to marry her into the
legacy, Chris Phelps the occasionally modest streaker has chemistry
with one of my heirs! Yuri and Chris have 3 bolts, so I think it’s a great
match, and I’ve wanted Chris in the legacy since generation 3, even
though only the last few generations were able to get to know her.
The only problem is, at this point, Yuri was not grilled cheese yet
because his aspiration was still too high. Would they still be interested
in each other once he was obsessed with cheese?
Yanichel is romance/family and Yasmine is family/popularity, so
they are both very interested in significant others. Yanichel
meets a nice romance sim named Daniel who is fascinated by her
ideas about making out. Meanwhile, Yasmine meets a family-
minded professor named Enrique, and they hit it off nicely. You’ll
notice I was careful to pair all three of them up with sims with
recessive hair, so that if they do have the red gene, it can be
Poor Yanichel. She was stuck here for about a sim-hour, unable to
drop the trash and leave, unable to go back up the stairs, unable to do
anything but twitch and take halting half-steps forward and backward
while the penguin and the snowman discussed their favorite book,
Crime and Punishment. Luckily the wintery book club came to an end
and Yanichel was able to continue her 10 neat points inspired
Yuri took forever to get a low enough aspiration to become grilled
cheese, so it was actually several days into college before he fulfilled
what the die decreed. Will he still have chemistry with Chris? There’s
only one way to find out.
“Hey, mom, who’s that hot chick you brought over with you?”
“That’s Chris, sweetie.”
“But she looks totally different. What’s going on?”
“Well . . .”
“We got a little impatient and we actively hated that horrible outfit she
had, so Ericka and I asked Chris to move in and gave her a makeover.
You know, she was my friend too, back in my college days. She said she
would miss streaking at college, but she was looking forward to getting
to know you better!”
“Of course, just because she was no longer the college streaker,
she didn’t have to become reasonable about clothing. She
picked a conservative outfit for daily wear, and then
conveniently “forgot” to get dressed after her shower. Ericka
was quite shocked by the whole thing. Since I knew her in
college, I wasn’t so surprised any more. I think Ericka may have
been a little jealous seeing me hug a naked woman, blur or no.”
“Well, I don’t know how I feel about
you matchmaking, Mom, but I can’t
help but feel romantic towards Chris.
If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go
ask her on a date.”
“Yes, yes, everything is going
according to plan!”
Actually, Veronica is getting ready
to smustle here, but doesn’t it
look like she’s plotting?
This is Yuri trying to flirt. You shy little thing, you. He’s so adorable.
Chris thinks so too. She accepted his date offer and was happy to hear
him flirting. Chris is a fortune sim. After Yuri’s cheesening, they still
have two bolts, so as long as nothing goes wrong, she’ll be his wife
“Mom! Stop supervising us!”
“Just making sure everything’s going okay! You go on and take a
picture now, Yuri-kins.”
“Mom, don’t call me that in front of Chris.”
“Okay, Yuri Yuri Bo Buri.”
With Veronica out of the way, Yuri gets his secondary
romance aspiration on. He may be shy, but he knows how to
lay it on thick and Chris is soon swooning over him.
“Honestly – I just want to play pinball, honey! I’m a guest in
this house, it’s not like I am actually trying to follow you
around and urge you to get married soon and have lots of
Yuri and Chris fell in love, despite Veronica interrupting constantly.
“Well, much like this toy, it’s only logical!”
Later, after Chris has left, Yuri calls his twin, Yumi.
“Hey, Yumi! You’ll never guess what’s happened to me. I think I’ve found
the one! I’m going to propose the next time I see her.”
“Is it Chris?”
“Yeah, how did you know?”
“Only that mom’s been obsessing over hooking her up with you.”
“She is out of control.”
“She’s a family sim. I’m back in the neighborhood, so you have no idea
how many ‘have grandchild’ wants she’s pestering me about.”
With the semi-arranged marriage
choice out of the way, Yuri focuses on
his LTW. It only takes one round of
eating 5/6 of the servings of grilled
cheese for him to bottom out his
fitness bar. Last time, I tried to keep
Penelope fit and it took too much
time. Yuri will probably just stay fat
until he finishes his LTW.
Yuri’s not the only one moving along on the dating front.
Yasmine gets her first kiss with Prof. Enrique, and they both
desire engagement soon after on the same date, so it
happens very quickly.
Yanichel and Daniel are likewise moving fast, but they only got
engaged because they’re romance sims and neither of them
feared it at the moment. So romantic, right?
Even after Chris left,
Veronica hung around the
Greek house forever. That
was actually a good thing,
though, because she’s got 10
nice points, so she’s one of
the few people who will
agree to talk grilled cheese
with Yuri. Yanichel also has
full nice points, so she helps
fulfill the want when
Veronica isn’t around. Yuri
constantly wants to talk
about grilled cheese, and it’s
an easy large-point want.
I was going to leave him fat for a while, but I forgot that I
wanted to get a portrait of Yuri for the library wall. Yasmine
painted it as soon as Yuri was back in shape, and then he
promptly went back to eating and bottomed out his bar
Here’s the finished portrait, along with the three others that have
lived in this particular house. These four are also remarkable for
being the heirs that I’ve played since my return to simming.
Although this particular house only goes back four generations, this
Greek house charter has been constant since generation 3.
After woohooing Yanichel, Daniel unwisely challenges Yuri to a
cheese-off, but he just can’t keep up with the champ.
“Bottomless Yuri can’t be beat!
Nom that cheddar!
Eat, eat, eat!! Yay!”
“Um, thanks for the cheer, I guess.”
“Go Yuri! Make that friend!
Get that relationship on the mend!
Siblings! Siblings! Yayyyyy siblings!”
Yuri is trying to make best friends with all 10 of his siblings, but it
must be hard to hear over the constant cheering.
“Oh my god, thanks for not being one of those annoying
cheerleaders. She won’t leave me alone.”
“I’m actually not a cheerleader anymore. My name is Caryl and I’m
married to your great-great uncle Paul. I just dress like this when I
visit the house ‘cause I miss the old days.”
“Huh. Small world. You going to finish that?”
“Chris! I’ve missed you so much.”
“Oh, Yuri. I’ve missed you too, but your mom is driving me a little
nuts at home pressuring me to visit you again.”
“Well, I’m glad you did! I have something I want to ask you, but . . .”
“I’m afraid. I’m sure you’ve noticed, but my body’s changed. The
cheese has taken over my slim figure. I hope you can still love me,
but the only way to know is to ask. So, Chris . . .”
“Will you be my bride?”
“Oh, Yuri! It’s beautiful! And so are you. You’re perfect in my
eyes. Of course I’ll marry you!”
“I guess it’s a good thing I proposed to you, Chris, and not the
other way around, because I’m not sure you could lift me.”
Yuri needs to focus on his grilled cheese-eating, so he starts
influencing his sisters to do all his work for him. They write his
paper, clean up his dishes, and keep the house nice. Pretty nice
gig for an heir, huh?
Near the end of junior year, Yuri reached the zone in cuisine. He now
glows all the time while he’s cooking and eating. Very amusing!
“Pick that sandwich up,
Put it to your lips!
You’ll never get enough
So chew it down to bits!”
“Oh, great. Another cheer.”
A few random notes. Yanichel and Yasmine
are still hanging around in the background.
When they’re not helping Yuri, they mostly
just hang out together. Winnipeg the
womrat is still alive, but he’s actually like
Winnipeg the VI because I’m bad about
keeping them alive. But this version has
lived for a while! Finally, Yasmine’s fiancé
Enrique is really bad about randomly
leaving during dates, so she gets a lot of
single flowers instead of bouquets.
“Oh, another cheering person. At least it’s a change. What do you
have for me today, buddy?”
EAT CHEESE! HURRAY!”
“Well, that was different, all right.”
Yanichel is so neat that she comes down and cleans up after Yuri
without me even telling her to. I like her.
“Gimme a G! Gimme an R! Gimme an I! Grimme an L! Gimme
another L! Gimme an . . .”
“Please, no. You’re not really going to spell out grilled cheese letter
by letter are you? That’s a horrible cheer.”
“. . . E! Gimme a D! Gimme a C! Gimme an H! Gimme an E! Gimme
another E! Gimme an S! One more E! What’s that spell?!”
Apparently juicin’ it up is a cuisine activity. Huh.
Twenty hours into senior year, Yuri has completed his LTW. Hurray!
“Yuri, Yuri, he’s our man!
If he can’t do it . . . oh, he already did? Dang. And I even came up
with a super original cheer this time.”
Now that his LTW is complete, Yuri
writes his own term paper for the
first time since freshman year. He
also spends a long time on the
treadmill to shed those grilled
Insert obligatory “in shape, but not that shape” joke here.
Yuri had some time and he was already working out, so I had him go
ahead and continue until he got fit. Don’t you wish it were this easy
in real life?
Life after cheese for Yuri is much
more carefree. He worked so hard
on his LTW that he neglected pretty
much everything else. Now he rolls
wants to sew projects, gets to play
with the bubble blower, and paints
pictures of grilled cheese, which is
my favorite lifetime perk.
“Sisters and brothers,
Ten in all!
Gotta befriend them,
So make that call! Woo!”
I thought this was just such a perfect encapsulation of their college
years. Yanichel and Yasmine in the background goofing off and Yuri
obsessing over grilled cheese while making friends with his siblings.
“Gimme a P! Gimme an A! Gimme . . .”
“Please stop. I get it. P-A-I-N-T. Paint. Yay, paint. Can’t you do
anything besides spell?”
“ . . . an I! Gimme an N! Gimme a T! What’s that spell?!”
Yasmine, Yanichel, and Yuri come
back from their last final with 4.0s. All
three ended up majoring in
philosophy because they never rolled
a want for a major, and Yuri probably
won’t even get a job when he
graduates, since all he has to do is
produce an heir.
So graduation time has come, but
since this will be the last
graduation in this legacy, I want
to throw a nice party for the
three kids. It’s pretty late when
they get back, though, so it will
have to wait till tomorrow.
Yasmine has been working for a while on getting a placeholder.
I don’t plan on playing this family again once I’m done, but I
just want to leave the Greek house running for posterity or
something. She befriends and moves in Talin Bui, who has been
a placeholder many times before in this legacy and has been a
member of the Greek house since the early days. He has a
major crush on Yasmine, but she’s engaged and thinks they’re
just friends. I love the side-eye she’s giving him as he checks
her out in her nightie, which she refuses to change out of most
of the time.
The night before the graduation party, we get another burglar!
“So . . . um, I fought the burglar. And I lost. So, um, she’s going
“What?! What kind of police officer are you?”
“The good news is she was too stupid to actually steal anything
and just stood around waiting for me to fight her, so you didn’t
have any objects stolen.”
“I guess that’s an upside.”
Graduation party day! Time to take one last formal photo in the
library with the portraits, and then it’s time for the party. I am
pleased that they all have blue collars (or whatever those things are
called) because it actually looks like they all go to the same college
All of their siblings, their mothers, Chris, and Carrie were
invited. The party started out with a little bit of hang-loosing,
because what would a Vermachtnis occasion be without hang
loose? If you look carefully, you’ll notice these pictures are going
on at the same time and are just on opposite sides of each
Yuri got to serve grilled cheese, and a
bunch of siblings had a bite, which
made him really happy. Chris couldn’t
wait for him to serve though, so she
just had a juice instead.
A huge group smustle breaks out in the front room, but Yates is just
too cool for it.
Meanwhile, Yuri and Chris spend some alone time upstairs.
The three kids get to catch up with
their twins. Yuri is the only one in the
generation that is friends with
everyone because of the wide age
differences, but Yasmine and
Yanichel have stayed close to their
twins at least.
Whoops! When Chris was walking
around in her undies after the
woohoo, I had Yuri influence her to
shower so she would change back
into her everyday.
Only Chris doesn’t change into
clothes after a shower, so we had a
streaker at the party anyway. Yuri
and Chris still stay out of the fray of
the party, and spend some more
time together in the library.
This time they’re not alone, however.
“Wow, that is really distracting.”
Sorry, Talin. Just ignore the naked woman making out with her
fiancé. That can’t be too difficult, right?
Yuri fulfilled a lot of grilled cheese wants during the party.
Lots of the kids ate a sandwich, which he got points for
every time, and when he wasn’t with Chris, he got to talk
grilled cheese with his mom.
True love will find each other. Despite three of these sims being
guests, both official couples wound up together on the upper floor.
While Ericka serenades
Veronica, Yuri grows up,
appropriately in a cheese-
colored chef’s outfit. For once
the random outfit fits. The
party was a raging success, and
Yuri leaves for home thinking of
what a great time he had in
Now let’s check in with the
spares. We’ll spend a bit more
time with Yasmine and
Yanichel, and then we’ll speed
through the other eight. I
promise it’ll be quick with
them. So read on!
Yasmine moves into a little starter house, invites Prof.
Enrique over, and gets him moved in and changed.
They had a nice little ceremony out
back, which they both got major
points for since they’re both family
Here’s a picture of the happy couple while it’s just the two of
That stage didn’t last long, however. Two family
sims, even if they weren’t spares that I was rushing
through, tend to have babies quickly and often.
Yasmine gives birth to twins, a blond little girl named Jasmine,
and a red-headed boy named Jasper. I’m really pleased that at
least one of the kids carried on the recessive hair colors.
Yasmine and Enrique were great and responsive parents to
Jasmine and Jasper.
The kidlets soon grew into toddlers, where it became
apparent that Jasper took after his mommy quite a bit, while
Jasmine looked more like her daddy.
The toddlers played nicely together, and Jasmine had a habit
of asking Yasmine to read, which reminded me of Yasmine
asking to be read to by Hayden all the time when she was a
child. It might look a bit like she’s refusing in this picture, but
she’s actually just “framing” things from an art hobby fixation.
While the twins were still quite
young, Yasmine discovered that she
was pregnant again.
She gave birth, and this time didn’t
have the decency to face the wall,
which exposes the fact that I was too
lazy to ever put her in maternity
Yasmine gave birth to a single
baby this time, a little boy named
Jeffrey also had blond hair, which
pleased me mightily.
Jasper and Jasmine soon grew into kids who continued to take
after one parent more than the other. Jasmine is wearing the
same dress Yasmine wore as a child.
And Jeffrey grew into a toddler who also has large eyes, and is
by far cuter than either of his older siblings.
Jasmine and Jasper had grown
close, and at first they ignored their
little brother quite a bit when they
They soon discovered how much fun being a big sister
or brother was, and started interacting with Jeffrey.
Soon Jeffrey also grew up, and he is definitely the cutest of the three.
Now that Jeffrey could really play with Jasmine and Jasper, the
three became great friends.
And that’s the end of the story for Yasmine’s happy family.
Moving on, Yanichel moved in her fiancé, Daniel, and started making
out right away. Romance sims.
They got married in their backyard, and Daniel actually
got points for it. You may notice that they’re wearing the
same formals that Yasmine and Enrique got married in. I
wanted all the kids to match when they got to Yuri’s
wedding, for which the colors are green and yellow, and I
was getting quite lazy by this point, so all the spares got
married in the same outfits, pale green dresses for the
future bridesmaids and suits with green waistcoats for
Anyway, back to Yanichel and Daniel. Don’t they make a nice
It wasn’t long before they welcomed a little girl named Jaimie into
Jaimie also inherited the large eyes, and although they look a
little strange on her as a toddler, she grows into them pretty well.
Daniel turned out to be an excellent father who monopolized
playing with Jaimie. Yanichel couldn’t help but think what a
great choice she’d made for the father of her children.
Yes, children in the plural, because while Jaimie was still a wee tot,
Yanichel gave birth to another baby.
This time it was a little boy named Jayden. I don’t know why but I
was apparently really into J names this generation. One of the
other later kids had children all with J names too. Anyway, Jayden
also had black hair, so we’ll never know if Yanichel carried red hair
or not, because she and Daniel are stopping here.
Jaimie grew into a child and Jayden grew into a toddler.
“Kids, watch this. It’s very important! Hang loose, Daniel!”
Now on to the other spares. We’re
gonna do these three slides per
spare because this chapter is
already really long. Yves proposed
to Kaylynn Spitzig and her giant hair.
They soon were wed. They make a
very cute couple.
Kaylynn and Yves had two brown-haired children named Yolanda
and Yardley, which were 2 Y names from my list that I didn’t use
last generation. Yolanda is extraordinarily beautiful, in my
opinion, but that isn’t surprising considering her parents.
Yates married a really pretty sim
And they had a really pretty daughter named Agatha.
It turns out that Yasmine was the only one to pass on
recessive hair, at least among the spares. We can still
hope for Yuri to pull through.
So concludes Yates’ life, as well as our recap of the spares
When we return again, Yuri will move home and start a family with
Chris. We’ll see their wedding and the birth of the 10th generation
heir, and then wrap this legacy up. Thanks for reading and make sure
to check back for the finale!
Hang out with me at SiMania!
