I'm a Shipper, She's a Shipper...Wouldn't you like to be a Shipper too

Strangely enough I had no idea that I was a Shipper until recently. I somehow had never heard the term.

As Defined by Urban Dictionay;

"The term "shipper" comes from supporting a ship. To ship something means a person wants two characters to get together and/or shows support for two characters already together. The term "ship" came from the X-Files fandom, when fanfics were written about Mulder and Scully. The fans then called themselves shippers. It quickly spread and is now the title a person gives themself if they believe two charcters should or will be together (The characters can be from anything: Books, Movies, Television, Video Games, and even Actors/Actresses). It is not limited to the couple actually happening, a person can ship something just because they enjoy the possibility of them getting together or even just because they think they would look good together."
 
I saw the term when I was reading Entertainment Weekly about the Vampire Diaries and I turned to my husband and informed that I am apparently a Shipper.
 
Some of my favorite Couples that I am in support of.....
 
Harry/Ginny from Harry Potter
 
Meghan/Ash from The Iron Fey
 
Tessa/Will from The Infernal Devices
 
Clary/Jace from The Mortal Instruments
 
Zsadist/Bella from The Black Dagger Brotherhood
 
Those are just a few of my favorites. I'm sure I could have a ten page list.
