The act of taking two fictional or non-fictional characters, and personally wishing for them to either be in love, or for them to have sex.

The term has many background terms.

If you are a person who wants to characters/people shipped, you are a shipper.

The term is changed to "Sailing Ship" whenever the ship that was made becomes successful. For example: two fictional characters falling in love after multiple ships of said characters were made.
"Jesus Christ, my hormones are shipping Cait and Frodo so fucking hard right now."

"Never knew that Rick and Michonne's ship would sail."

A boat. That's all it should be. It's just a boat. People need to calm down with all this other crap; a ship is a BOAT. A big piece of metal that floats miraculously on the surface of the water, and usually holds people and/or cargo.
There is a ship in that movie. It was very large and it caught fire and people on it died.

A couple. Two people one thinks should date, or likes that they do/did. Usually combines the two names to make a ship name, i.e.:John+Karen=Jaren. Usually the boy's name goes first, however it is used. It can combine the last names to such as peazer+payne=payzer. A rare form of a ship name is one name inside another, such as louis+eleanor=elounor(i don't ship it). A ship is the couple. To ship something is to suppourt the ship. Shipping is when you create ships. Ships are most commonly used in fandoms or with celebrities, but are also used for people you know. Also commonly used for fictional characters.
"Do you ship Joe and Stacey?"
"Yes! Their ship name should be Stoe. Or Jacey!"
"Oh, they are such a cute couple."
