Random quote Meme

Gakked from omphale23. Sometimes the random things we've written are the best to read. So comment here, and I'll give you a month and year. You choose a few lines from something you wrote that month and post them in your journal, along with an offer to choose dates for anyone who comments.

Here's a bit from Unwritten Rules:

Benton chose to follow in Father's footsteps and become a Mountie. The first day at the Depot, Benton met his troop. Picturing the careful submissiveness of a new sled dog trying to join a team, he did his best to fit in. The first weekend they went out to a local bar and drank to excess. The sensation of drunkenness was rather unpleasant, but it was exhilarating to be accepted as part of the group.

The following week Benton found his troop mate Steve copying his answers on a procedural assessment. The unwritten rules among cadets said he should turn a blind eye to Steve's cheating. Benton considered his options that night, lying awake in his bunk, listening to the rest of the troop shift and mutter in their sleep around him. The decision he made here would set the pattern for the rest of his career. The next morning, Cadet Fraser turned Steve in. The cadets rejected him in turn. At least this time, it was his choice
