Thursday: You put what, in where... with who?

Happy Thursday everyone! The weekend is just around the corner. But first! Today's theme is Fill In The Blanks. All fandoms and characters are welcome today. But your prompt and responses will require a special format!

For the prompt, you need to have a phrase or sentence with words redacted. For example:
Your prompt would be:
Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a physicist!

Your prompt should now appear as:
Dammit, Jim, I'm a ____, not a ____!
This is just an example, obviously. Maybe you want to remove the name Jim instead, or only remove the word doctor. Whatever words you remove must be important verbs (must be an action verb -- not "is"), nouns or adjectives, and you must remove at least one word. Think of MAD LIBS.

For the fic response, you need to at least include the prompt in the subject line or at the beginning of your comment with how you're saying the blank slots should be filled in, and then you write your fic based on that prompt. For example:
The prompt appears as:
Dammit, Jim, I'm a ____, not a ____!

You're filling in the blanks as:
Dammit, Jim, I'm a secret agent, not a mad scientist!
Your interpretation of the prompt can be as serious, angsty, thrilling, literal, romantic, or cracky as you like!

Just please remember to follow our usual rules:

No more than 5 prompts in a row, no more than 3 prompts per fandom. If someone answers your prompt, you may prompt again.

No spoilers in your prompts until at least 1 week after the original publication/air date. If your response includes spoilers, you need to warn in bold and leave at least 3 spaces.

Please format your prompts appropriately, and keep them to a reasonable length. Keep the theme's rules in mind! For example:
Star Wars, Han Solo/Chewbacca, they need to bring the ____ to ____ because otherwise ____ will ____ to ____
Community, Troy/Abed, "For GCTV this is Abed Nadir saying: Did you know you can ________ out of common ____ and ____?"

White Collar/Leverage, author's choices, when Neal steals the ____ it hurts the Leverage con
Highlander/BSG, Methos, _____ was always a Cylon and knows all too well that "All this has happened before"

Not finding a prompt to your liking? Feel free to peruse our lonely prompts. There's plenty of good prompts waiting for a friendly author to take them up!

Alrighty, guys, let's get cracking. :D
