Tools: ctrl+F, correct spelling, a processing brain

Notes for ctrl+F:
- H/H monogamous pairs: in male/female order, but occasionally the reverse slips by, so try both ways
- H/P monogamous pairs: in human/pokémon order, but same as above
- P/P, polyamorous, and homo pairs: you're on your own, but try searching for the character that might have less pairs

-And overall, ask nicely.

Most importantly: look before you ask. If you cannot find what you seek, then please, inquire away. Maybe you missed it, maybe it's not there. We forgive that.


THREAD RULES
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO NAME A PAIRING
-when you have found a shipping name for your couple, you MUST formalize it, which means in the body of your post, you have to INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
1) The shipping name you have chosen
2) The names of the characters who you were looking to give a name
3) Affirmation that this choice is absolutely your pick, no room for question.
3a) If it is questioned and you find a better name, please do the above again.

YOU have to do this; not anyone helping you, but you. Why? It's your responsibility.

Doing it wrong:
So what about *******shipping?
8D Yeah, that sounds cool. Let's go with that!
So what about *******shipping?
8D Yeah, that sounds good for xcab and ybac.
So what about *******shipping for xcab and ybac?
8D Yeah, that sounds cool. Let's go with that!
Doing it correctly:
So what about *******shipping for xcab and ybac?
8D Oh, nice. I want *******shipping for xcab and ybac!
If you don't like any of the suggestions, you are free to say you don't like them. Your pairing, your decision.

IF YOU ARE SUBMITTING A NAME
-you should have all the above information by default so no biggie, BUT,
-if someone makes a suggestion and you like it, the above applies and you must include all the new information in your post. As a submitter, you are responsible for that.

Consequences of not adhering to the above:
-Your submission will be skipped over until it is put all in one post by YOU, the submitter.

IF SOMEONE ELSE IS ASKING FOR A SHIPPING NAME BETWEEN TWO+ CHARACTERS
-you cannot definitively name it. You can only make suggestions to the seeker. If you try to name it, you'll just look like a terrible person.

If time lapses and no decision is to be made OR the person absolves themselves of responsibility for the couple in question
