Uber-Xena Stories (Mel & Janice)

Last updated on: Sunday, May 5 2002



What is Uber-Xena?
The term uber-Xena was coined to categorize those stories which may not actually involve the characters from the TV show but do present the fundamental essence or characteristics of the characters in a different time, setting, or reality - much as the episode "The Xena Scrolls" did. Though the main characters may not be perfect images of the orignal Xena and Gabrielle either in appearance or personality, typically they share the same sort of bond between them.
