50 of the Most Popular 'Ships' in Fandom Culture #infographic

People have carved out active niches since the dawn of the Internet where they can express ideas , build and share dedicated derivative content, and rejoice in their mutual passion for a specific show, film, literary work, universe, video game, human, or hobby. These avid groups of individuals have become recognised as fandoms in time. For anything, there's really a fandom. Only search online for your favorite TV show and you are sure to discover a wealth of all kinds of fan-generated content. Sometimes, this infectious strength is directed towards the characters that exist in each universe (fictional or otherwise).

The direct and indirect ties between these characters are where "shipping" flourishes. Shipping means desiring a (romantic or platonic) relationship between characters. Often, as is the case with Mulder and Scully from the X-Files, these ships are true to the source material, but sometimes these ships are not directly written to the source. Fans, however, dedicate passion and imagination to bringing their ships to life in various ways. Shipping thrives through these media: fan art, fan fiction, podcasts, videos, blogs , forums. This infographic shows the most famous ships of all time, collected from website data such as Tumblr, Fanfiction.net, Our Own Database, Wattpa Deviantart, and there's more.
