I'm looking for a Heidi. And by Heidi I mean a specific edition of the book by Johanna Spyri.

It's a book I read years ago, though I suspect I didn't so much as read but rather look at the pictures. But the only thing I can remember from the book is that it had a picture that looked something like this:

Heidi Sketch from Dodgy Memory by FairyKitsch

The actual picture would obviously more professional than my dodgy rough sketch. And it was most definitely in colour; I think gouache, certainly something bright and opaque.

I am now on a mission to find this book! If anyone could recommend any possibilities, I'd be very grateful.

Because if I can't find it, then the alternative must be that I travel back in time and illustrate an edition of Heidi myself.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! ♥

I've just looked at the raw chapter 272 from Sket Dance, so much YuukixSwitch love again T/////T :heart: I missed this!!!! (just had to write you!). I'd really want to know what they talk about ..such a pity it's still not translated.
But I found out in a forum, that Yuuki wants to study science, so she can have a new viewpoint on the occult things :'DD

Oooh, there were so many adorable things in that chapter. ^_^ Switch being sure Yuuki could take care of herself; Yuuki refusing to argue about occult stuff with that bully (cause that's her thing with Switch, dang-nabbit); Switch once again going all out with his special effects trickity tricks; everyone's reaction when Yuuki said she was going to study science; Switch being scornful that she'd only just be able to scrape into a good school; Yuuki saying, no, my grades are quite good actually. And then the kicker: Yuuki smiling! I don't think she's ever smiled at Switch since the first time they spoke in their first year (before it all went horribly wrong). That page of them regarding each other was very much an echo of the first year flashback chapter.

I was thinking that this chapter would have been the herald for a chapter where Switch begins to have doubts about studying science/engineering himself, going to Tokyo U, following the path that his brother would have taken, and instead considers that his gift might be to tell stories and make movies. But nope, that didn't happen. :P Yuuki chapters always seem to occur just before major Switch chapters; though three chapters on and my theory is currently wrong. ^^;

But this is all getting me slightly antsy. What's going to happen to the series once they finish high school? Will it end or will it follow them to uni? I thought once mangaka's got serialised that they hanged on to their spots like limpets. Yet why does this series fell like it's going to end? Oooh, so much uncertainty. D:

Of course, if Yuuki studied science and Switch studied film making, then they could both go on X-files/Scooby Doo/Blair Witch adventures and have their own series. :D ...or not. ^^;
