The fourth season of Template:The Vampire Diaries will begin airing in the United States in fall 2012. It was announced on May 3, 2012 that the show was renewed for another season. This is my fanfiction.
Season Four begins with the knowledge that everything is in transition. Elena has to adjust to a life she never wanted, and everyone has to cope with the chaos Alaric created when he outed the vampires and their supporters to the Mystic Falls Council.
