Just a sort of personal question about a hot phrase


How did ship it become the go to phrase for supporting things? Does anyone know?

I have seen it used a lot lately.

I hear it in writing all the time... they often Ship characters together that normally wouldn't be romantically or other ways... My Favorite ones have been Harry Potter Characters..

Yes that is what I am hearing it in reference to mostly, romatic fictional characters. I hear it on occasion with other things though. Well technically I see it because it is read.

I think it's from relationship. "I like this couple in this relationship, I 'ship' them/it."

It's short for relationship, it means you want two fictional characters to become a couple, even if that would never happen in the fictional canon. If i were to say "I ship Snape and Lily" it means i wanted snape and lily to be together in harry potter. I havent heard the term used outside of tumblr, lol
