I know the end before
The story's been told
It's not that complicated
But you're gonna need a bullet proof soul

Bullet Proof Soul - Sade

Shipping is like time, nothing can stop it. Some series don't have romantic relationships? That cannot stop shipping. Some shows have romantic relationships that are set in stone? That cannot stop shipping. Some shows have asexual characters? That cannot stop shipping.

When people want in their hearts for two characters to hook-up, they become a fearsome force sometimes for good but mostly for evil. For Valentine's Day we look at how shipping affects fandom and the fans who ship. We even make some confessions about who we ship and which ships we fight against.
