  • Uberfic
rdfs:comment
  • Uberfic (short for uber fanfic, uberXena, or simply uber or über) is a kind of alternative universe fan fiction in which characters or events are portrayed somewhat closely to original canon but usually in a different time period, many times featuring the ancestors, descendants or reincarnations of canon characters. The term originated in Xena: Warrior Princess fandom. This sort of story was used by the series itself, beginning with the second season episode "The Xena Scrolls". A common trend in Xena fanfics was to write Uber stories in which the characters' analogues discover that they are soulmates.
  • Some consider the first uberfic in the XWP fandom to be the X-files crossover Warrior's Heart by Darkone that first appeared in February 1997. A popular example of the genre are the characters Dar and Kerry that were first seen in Tropical Storm.
