Taking the ending of The Originals as it's starting point, The Awakening is a spin-off starring Danielle Campbell as Davina Claire and Malese Jow as Anna Huo.

PremiseEdit

Unknown number of years have passed and the world has forgotten all about the supernatural. There hasn't been an incident in years. However, everything changes on the day of The Convergence. As the barriers between Afterlife and Land of the Living weakens, Anna, a vampire who has found peace, forces her way back to Earth to find Pearl, her missing mother. Since the Other Side is destroyed and the only place she can be is the Ancestral Plane, Anna enlists the help of Davina Claire, the Gatekeeper, to help her find the lost soul. However, their search invokes powers that has long been dormant, and pushes the supernatural world into a powerful Awakening.

Trivia & NotesEdit

  • The Awakening is the title of the first novel in The Vampire Diaries novel series. Needless to say, the story is not based on the novel, or any novel.
  • No years will be established in the series to keep the "where does this fit in the timeline" vague.
  • Events of Legacies will not be considered canon.
  • Shelley Hennig is the only actor/actress who appears in all 3 of my fan fictions.
  • I found no source indicating Anna's surname was Zhu as it said on The Vampire Diaries wiki [1], so I came up with a different surname. Continuity be damned.
  • The series will end on it's 123rd episode for no other reason than I feel like it. For this reason, I opted for a shorter first season which consists of 11 episodes, unlike the regular 16 like the following seasons.
  • Unlike it's more grounded predecessors, this series takes things up plenty of notches. There will be all kinds of sci-fi/fantasy stuff like deities, demons, aliens, celestials and time travel.
  • Every season, the episode before the finale will be a "what if" episode. Regarding a crucial decision taken somewhere in the season, these episodes will show "where things would have been now if a different choice was made".
  • There will be crossovers with various shows or movies (because why not), limited to be once per season, and most likely (but not as a rule) occurring within in the first 3 episodes of every season.
  • Episode titles will be in Latin. I don't know Latin, so if my Latin sucks, blame Google Translate. That said, if anyone fluent in Latin might wanna give me a hand, I'd be much happy :)
