    Shipping - to ship - means to support two fictional characters as a romantic couple. Each "ship", the fandom, has a different name, along with the suffix "-shipping" to indicate a different pair. That name/word tells you something about the ship at hand. For instance - Contestshipping - the supporting of the May and Drew romance from Pokemon. The name comes from the fact they both enter contests.
    Hope that helps.

    Ship is short for Relationship. So a Shipping is a relationship between tyow caracters preeceded by s prefix which is what these two characters have in common. Example:

    Contestshipping. May + Drew. Well this is a shipping that supports a relationship between May and Drew who have contests in common.

    Understood?
