Notes: This was inspired by this prompt from jerakeenc on tumblr. When I read it, I couldn't get the idea out of my head for a story bookended by pre-canon and post-canon and Derek dancing. I had to write this, and it's not exactly the prompt, but it's what came out. As always, I do not own the world nor characters of Teen Wolf, I just like to play with the characters.
Summary: Dance has music. It has music similar to what Paige played, and maybe, just maybe, it can lift the darkness from around his heart and give him back the soul that her death took away. OR The one where Derek dances in NYC and when life in Beacon Hills calms down, maybe he can dance then, too.
