This is a crossover scene, two scenes technically, that I wrote a
while back, between watching Leverage and The Librarian movies and watching The
Librarians show, and polished up for Character Appreciation Week. It is not canon compatible for… reasons. If you’ve seen The
Librarians you know why. If not I won’t spoil it. (And if you like Eliot enough
to be reading fanfiction about him, you should definitely go watch The
Librarians, if only for Jake Stone.) Basically it’s anEliot appreciation piece because… actually
I think “because he is Eliot” pretty much covers it. There are vague spoilers
for both stories here, but nothing overly specific.
(When the rest of the team is in
danger, Eliot needs to use Excalibur to save them.)
Eliot stared at the sword lodged in
the stone for a long moment. He was the only one of the team that hadn’t tried,
and failed, to pull it out earlier.
“The way I see it,” he said finally
“you have a personality, at least with Flynn, so I think you got at least some
say in who uses you. It didn’t matter before because only the worthy can wield
you. I’m sittin’ here bearin’ my soul to a sword so it’s possible I’m crazier
than Parker, but I’m not that crazy.
I’m not under the delusion that I’m worthy. But the people I’m goin’ to save
are. They’re the worthiest part of me and I need… I need your help gettin’ ‘em
back. So please, help me save them,
just this once.”
He reached out hesitantly and the
sword sprung a few inches into his hand of its own volition.
