Pornography vs. Erotica.Proposal: ÜberXena was borne from Alt. XENA fan fic, which stereotypically includes a money shot or two. Über has adapted this idiosyncrasy and then some. Is it erotica? Is it pornography? Does the genre lose its essence if the "adult" aspect of Über is removed?

The Lesbian Influence on ÜberXena.Proposal: Is Über essentially a sub-genre of lesbian fiction?
The First-Time Alt. Story and ÜberXena.Proposal: Is ÜberXena just a clever way to keep on writing "First Time" Alt. Stories?
The Slash Tradition and ÜberXena.Proposal: Is ÜberXena just a new manifestation of slash fiction (same old, same old), or does it offer something new to media fandom fan fiction?
A Short History of ÜberXena.Proposal: How and why the word was coined and the stories that inspired it; the early trends and its current status.
Why Über?Proposal: Speculation on why bards are writing Über and if it will eventually supplant Classical XWP stories set in Ancient Greece or its contemporaries when the show ends.
Transcendent Über.Proposal: Introduce the concept of artistic transcendence and give examples of Transcendent Übers.
