Title: Heartbeat
Author: umbrellaofdoom
Prompt: "Unzip my body, take my heart out" Ramalama (Bang Bang) - Roísín Murphy
Notes: Drabble, 100 words. When I started picking song lyrics as prompts, there were a few ways that it could have been taken as. The song title or lyrics could inspire. But the song itself could as well. This fic is one where the words weren’t the original prompt for me (though the fic does work well with it) but it was the song and how it made me feel.



Sometimes, all there was was the music.
Sometimes, the only thing that mattered was moving. Moving for the sake of doing something, anything.

Her eyes fells shut as she pressed play, bobbing her head to the haunting first tracks of the music. It took only a few seconds to get a feel for the music, inspiring her to begin moving with the heavy drum line beneath the melody. The movements were hard, snaps and pops, pushing out her frustration. Nothing mattered. With every move, she dealt with frustration, let the pain flow out. Until there was nothing left to hurt.
