Right now I am triple-booting Xubuntu 13.04, Fedora 18, and windows 7. I decided that I didn't like fedora, and I want to remove it, but the official documentation can't help me. Is there something specific I need to do, or can I just Gparted my way to victory? To install, I just used Gparted to resize my xubuntu partition and then pointed the fedora installer to the open space, while changing the default to a normal partition, not lvm. This installed another GRUB, which works now but may complicate the uninstallation process.

Yeah, you don't really 'uninstall' any Linux distro, you just format over it. You just need to make sure that you don't hose up the partition with the grub bits on it that is first loaded.

You should be able to use Gparted to remove your Fedora bits and extend your other filesystems to use the space, then boot into Xubuntu and run sudo update-grub to remove Fedora from the boot menu. This is assuming that Xubuntu's grub is the one that the system initially boots from.
