Just When You Thought You Knew What Shipping Was……


After so long in the business, I thought I had a pretty good idea what shipping was, but it turns out I was wrong!

I have a Google alert set up for the word “shipping” appearing in the news. Of course, this occasionally throws up some non-shipping stories, but today’s shipping news link is a winner. According to the Heatstreet website “shipping” is a word used in the world of fandom to denote a romantic relationship between two characters that did not exist as part of the original story-line. While this sounds a bit fantastic (pun intended), the article by William Hicks seems to be well-research and a bit above the usual lurid click-bait. Therefore I will not reproduce it in full here, but you can read the article here, if you are interested.
