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".[1] A common trend in Xena fanfics was to write Uber stories in which the characters' analogues discover that they are soulmates.[2]
