Default If Then Else = Fail

Never had this big a struggle with if then, but then I've never introduced a second variable.
This works fine and dandy:
{ IF { MERGEFIELD f3 } = "Y" "{ MERGEFIELD f18 }" "{ MERGEFIELD f2 }
(If party is a child, insert this name, if not insert that name).
It's when I go for two conditions to describe that it just will not pull...
(If party is a child, insert this name, if party is deceased, pull this name, if not insert that name).
{ IF { MERGEFIELD f3 } = "Y" "{ MERGEFIELD f18 }" { IF { MERGEFIELD f5 } = "Y" "{ MERGEFIELD f18 }" "{ MERGEFIELD f2 }" }
{ IF { MERGEFIELD f3 } = "Y" { IF { MERGEFIELD f5 } = "Y" "{ MERGEFIELD f18 }" "{ MERGEFIELD f2 }" }

I would ordinarily not put so many conditionals, but being able to accomplish these two situations will prevent my tired soul from having to create dozens of extra merge docs.

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks!
