Taavi's face is excellent in top left.. and then how he freaks the fuck out!

yeah well Oskari, we get your point. Taav's an adult tho', and who he screws or romances is none of yer biz, mate - and the threat about warrant etc? so low, even for you. what you just did was alienate a good friend, make an enemy of your ex in whose pants you now have minus 273.15 chances to ever get again, create a stressing, aggressive & awkward work ambiance with a colleague - all of this cuz you think you're so smart, but if Taav really loves this guy, he'll do anything to get him back anyways... while you're def outta the picture.. *shrugs* - have fun with your smart brain & your hand XD

Judgement? From him? That's kinda premature and more than a little self-interested.

Taavi is no angel, but his colleague doesn't exactly know the full story.

Great Story!

reply

The reason why he does in drugs doesn't actually matter, dealing with drugs is just wrong, and he should be charged for it. Seeing it like most of you it's no wonder that so many criminals don't get in jail, shame on you, only he's cute and gay doesn't mean he can do everything, don't be so ridiculous please.

I concur with the title though must raise questions of my own

reply

@Guest:

I believe that the reason is, in fact, the most important part. Yrkki has been given few others options.

It's a reflection on the real world where we find that most people involved in any sort of crime were in the same boat -- that is, forced into such situations with really very little choice. You must understand that very few people would elect to do anything to harm others. That is, no sane person would choose to commit crime unless they were backed into a corner.

There are some bad seeds but we must realize that we live in a world where a lot of our "rotten apples" were made rotten by a rotten system. That is, we must realize that our prisons globally are filled with people who had and still have the potential to be and do good but because we elect to treat them as unforgivables that must be punished (despite the fact that in many countries the purpose of a prison is meant to be rehabilitation) we keep them trapped in a cycle where they continue having no choice or where they are never made aware of any other options which could be available to them.

What would punishing Yrkki do? Send a message? People already know dealing drugs is against the law. Yrkki already knows that and he already feels guilty. It wouldn't teach him a lesson. Nor would it make any sort of strong statement because the only people who would turn to such things are people who are already desperate and without options. Y'know what it would do, though? It would clear the way for another desperate youth to fill his place. It would leave his little sisters defenseless and it would put a good man in prison thereby potentially hindering him from pursuing a better life later (it's a darned good thing this isn't set in the U.S. because then a lot of this would be a given -- I'm not terribly certain how this would all be treated in this particular setting).

So, why don't we want to see Yrkki charged? Not because he's "cute and gay" but because we are able to relate to him on an intimate level as a human-being (lol. character. The point is the writing is swell) who has been forced into a desperate situation and through no fault of his own has had to turn to less than noble means for the sake of simply surviving.

I see nothing ridiculous in feeling sympathetic. In fact, I think the fact that people are able to look passed the crime and at the person is hopeful. It's more hopeful still that people are capable of identifying the flaws of our criminal justice systems and it's really, really dang hopeful that someone would elect to write such a story wherein "bad guys" are virtually non-extant in favor of a set complex characters who act based on various motivations and so who may clash due to differing ideals/motivations/etc thereby forcing us, the readers, to call into question our own ideas of right and wrong.

Though that's all just my two cents. I hope not to offend and I should make it clear that I do see where you may be coming from however have some very different ideas.

@Travelingpooch:

I don't know how to be concise. Not attempting to start anything here. Cross my heart! My intention was just to share different readings of the story 'n' such. Book club style. Though if you feel it could be potentially read as hostile/not worth the time, I could go and remove the comment altogether.

TLDR: The world is a terrible and people who are sympathetic toward Yrkki probably have more of a reason than him being cute (even though he's the cutest). All preceded with a potential reason for such sympathy.

@GuestAgain: that was well worded and educational for any readers coming from a "sheltered" lifestyle wherein they perceive things literally as black or white and have no varying shades of grey; not a hostile assumption but I know a lot of people who are shocked by "the apparent bad person literally isn't a bad person, and I only believe they're bad because society and the media have painted them as evil" trope
