Welcome back to the Vermachtnis Legacy, the hang-loosin’, alien-infested, baby-crazy family you know and love. Sasha here ispregnant with twins, the final sims of the generation. Her olderchildren, Vincent, Vance, and Vanessa, are still growing, too. Let’sget started.
“Here, baby, let me give you a backrub. I know how rough pregnancyis on you, especially with twins. Must be hard. Must make one longfor a backrub.”“Oh, Sasha, you’re so thoughtful.”“And you’re so dense, Hayden. It’s a good thing I love you.”
This didn’t die off since the last chapter, unfortunately.
Sasha went to work pregnant and came home a RockGod, fulfilling her second LTW. Once again, I got a pictureof the influence points. Sigh.Her new lifetime want is to have 6 grandchildren, whichwill definitely happen.
Vincent is busy with schoolwork and learning his skills. When he rolls wants for it, I let him max some of them. He grew up right before fall so he’s in good shape.The twins, Vance andVanessa, are also learning newthings. They tend to learn thingsas a pair. More so than any othertwins I’ve had, they’re verysynchronized on their scheduleand always wake up and go tosleep at the same time, so theylearn at the same time too.
Vincent, Vance, and Vanessa make friends at the play table. I lovethat kids don’t have to wait until they’re all children to start formingrelationships. I know I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it manymore times, but I love this table.
Sasha goes into labor whileLexie and Hayden are hang-loosing at each other. Lexieand Vincent – who ran infrom studying – manage topay attention, but Haydenthinks this is a perfect time tostare at the poster on thewall. Don’t pay attention toyour own baby or anything,Hayden! Now let’s see thosetwins.
Hey! What the heck? That is clearly not twins. That is a singlebaby. What is going on?Her name is Veronica, by the way. She has Hayden’s eyes andhair and Sasha’s recessive skin.
Here’s what I think happened. I use the trips and quads hack, andwhen the birth happens, it gives you the option to pick the numberof babies, randomize it, or have the original number. I chose originalbecause, hey, cheesecake, it’ll be twins. Except I think it defaulted tothe original original, i.e. one baby. This is my theory anyway. So theVermachtnises have only four children. This does not make mehappy but there isn’t much I can do about it at this point.
Hayden never rolls any wants for his children, but he is a greatdad nonetheless. He likes to sneak off to the nurseries to playwith or cuddle his little ones.
Ugh, Lexie. She is really tickingme off. She just follows Haydenaround the house and findsthings to do that are near him.If they were married, it wouldbe adorable. Since they’remother-in-law and son-in-law, it’s just gross.
Sasha is job-hopping, looking for something interesting to do now thather LTW is no longer job-oriented. She tries Paranormal here alongwith a few others, but eventually settles in as head of the SCIA sincethey keep nice, regular hours.
Vincent grew up right before theweekend so it’s several daysbefore he actually has his firstday at school. When he getshome, Hayden helps him with hishomework. The child stage brings out the parent – or rather the knowledge/fortune sim – in Hayden, and he now rolls wants for Vincent to get A’s and get into private school. We’ll wait on the private school until more of the kiddies are school age.
Here’s a weirdo barging into my house to talk to my toddler again.
Birthday time has come for Vance, Vanessa, and Veronica.Let’s see what we come up with.
Vance and Vanessa still look a lotlike each other and Vincent, butlook at Veronica! She got Sasha’sbig eyes and is just adorable! Shelooks like a cartoon character withthose eyes. Her personality is7/2/10/6/10. She’s our only nicesim of the generation, and, like heruncle Sid, she tops the scale.
Like her siblings before her, Veronica learns to walk right there inthe kitchen after her birthday. Lexie and Vanessa were close tofriends and Vanessa wanted to make a friend, so they hang out toget that relationship up high enough.
Now that’s she old enough, Veronica gets to play with herolder siblings to make friends. She also becomes bestfriends with Sasha from kisses and tickles.
While Vincent trudges up the stairs, Vance and Vanessa race totheir first day of school.
Now that they’rechildren, Vance and Vanessa canstart the really hard skilling.They learn how to do theirhomework from Hayden andPalmer, and then retire to theCouch of Skilling to study up.
I am kind of in love with Veronica. She is just so cute withthose big eyes. They do look really different on a sim withoutgreen skin, though. It’s a pity we didn’t have anyone carryingon Sasha’s green skin.
When she reached head of the SCIA, Sasha also met a majorfinancial milestone. Meanwhile, Hayden has become a spacepirate, fulfilling his second LTW. He now wants to be a madscientist again.
While her older siblings arestudying grown-up skills, Veronicahas some skilling of her own to do.Her family also finds plenty of timeto spend with her, whether that’splaying with the Wabbit head ortickling her.
Vincent’s aspiration was getting low and he rolled a want for this, so Iwent for it. Considering his baby and toddler years, I was reallysurprised that he didn’t throw up afterwards. Maybe he’s finally overthat stage. Thank goodness.
Vincent has gotten all of his skills up to scholarship levels orabove, so he’s free to goof off while the other two keepstudying. He dances with Hayden long enough to get invitedto the music and dance hobby club. That’s a lot of dancing.
Veronica, the youngest of the generation, has another birthday.
She’s still lovely. She takes to dressing a little bit punk-lite totry to fit in with her mean siblings, but it’s not fooling anyone.
Sammy was present for the birthday and they start gossipingabout Palmer’s sister-in-law, their aunt. Palmer! Didn’t you raiseyour daughter better than that?“No, that’s pretty much exactly how I raised her.”
Veronica now gets to join Vance and Vanessa on the Couch ofSkilling while Vincent plays pinball for hours at a time. Growing upin the fall was a good idea, Vincent.
Vance has picked up on one of the household hobbies andstarts writing in his diary, only to worry about Veronica readingit.
Lexie and Hayden perform the famous and stirring “PajamaSonata.”
I missed Veronica heading off to school, but here she is cominghome, unimpressed with her C+.
The kids continue to bring homerelatives. Peter and Morris Jr., topright and bottom right respectively,are frequent visitors like all of Lydiaand Morris’ children. Madison alsocame over a lot but I missed takinga picture of her. Just for somethingdifferent, Emilio, anothergeneration 6-er and son of theother Madison Vermachtnis, stopsby too.
Once Veronica has learnedher homework and gottenher grade up, we invite theheadmaster over. It’s just intime, too, because Vincent isset to grow up tonight.However, there’s a problem.The headmaster glitched andrefused to come in off theporch, come to dinner, oreven to talk to Hayden. Iforced an error on him andhe disappeared, and by thenit was too late to invite himback over. At least thescenario disappeared too, sowe didn’t fail it. GuessVincent won’t be getting in toprivate school before hisbirthday.
But first! Time for a drink! There’s always time for a drinkin the Vermachtnis house!
Everyone is in attendance for Vincent’s birthday. He grows up well, of course.Vincent is Romance/Fortunewith the LTW to be a CriminalMastermind. Finally one ofmy mean sims wants a meanjob! Vincent gets one piece ofcake and no makeover beforebeing shipped off to college.
First, though, the girls have to stop playing catch in the street rightin front of the van. Vincent had to leave for college right awaybecause I had a plan.
A plan to get at least five Vermachtnises in this generation, thatis. Sasha got pregnant immediately after Vincent left andwhipped up a batch of cheesecake. If we’re going for onemore, why not make it two? Veronica is still quite a young childso the new babies won’t be that far behind.
The soothing sounds of the “Pajama Sonata” are once againheard throughout the house, though this time it’s the twinsplaying it. Vance even maxes his creativity!
Okay, this? This is enough to make a girl turn her speakers off.
Headmaster take two the next day. This time everything goesas planned: he eats salmon by himself, tours thebathrooms, and chats with Hayden and the kids get in withpoints to spare.
And don’t they look darling in their new uniforms?
Sasha has had some particularly badmorning sickness with thispregnancy. In fact, as you can seeby the drab purple pajamas she’swearing, she was still puking evenafter she’d had the first bump. I’venever seen that before.
Everyone is delighted that there’ll betwo more additions to theVermachtnis family.
“Hayden – last chance – how about that backrub now?”“Sure, sweetie, I’d love one.”“Sigh.”
“Oh hee hee, stop tickling me, Palmer. Tee hee. Justkidding. Don’t stop.”Hayden has the weirdest autonomous relationships with hisin-laws.
Vance grew up to look just like Vincent, which is to be expectedsince they’re clones. The real surprise is Vanessa, who grew upextremely pretty. She’s a great mix of her parents.Vance is Pleasure/Family with the want to have 50 first dates.Vanessa is Romance/Popularity, and she wants to be a Visionary.You can probably guess which one of these I like better.
I was going to keep the teens around for a little while tobecome overachievers since all the adults want that, butthey both set about being extremely useless, and pleasureaspirations drive me crazy. That was actually a want of his –to juggle bottles. Argh. Time for college, you two.
Vance and Vanessa head off to college, leaving only Veronicaand the growing fetuses behind.
Sasha once again goes intolabor in an awkwardcorner, and while she’spreparing the first baby forthe handoff, Lexie and Haydenstart goofing off again.
This time I clicked on Choose … Twins, since I knew with thecheesecake she was supposed to have twins, and I got what Iwanted. Plus, this time we finally got a baby with green skin!Both little girls have brown hair and eyes, though. On the leftis Valerie and on the right is Victoria.
I totally keep forgetting that Idownloaded this stuff. Thebabies are adorable using it,though. I took anembarrassingly large number ofpictures of them chewing ontheir toes and batting at themobile, but I’ll only subject youto these two.
That is a big no-no, missy. You get down this instant!
And that’s where I’ll leave you for now, though anotherchapter will be out soon. Will Sasha and Hayden be able toraise their newest babies even though they’re almost elders?How will sweet little Veronica grow up? What will Valerie andVictoria look like when they age?
