Process of Shipping
*WARNING*: Shipping is a dangerous game. It could affect your mental health and sleep schedule. Do not ship because you will get fucked up.
Step 1: Find two characters on a show/book/movie (whether they are compatible or not)
Example: Hmmm… Snart and Sara are two lovely characters
Step 2: See them as best pals because you know THEY WILL (probably) NEVER BE CANON
Example 2: Aw look at Mick and Amaya… They have such good friend chemistry… Too bad they aren’t canon
Step 3: Look at all their gifs together. Read fanfic about them. Become obsessed.
Example 3: KARA AND LENA KISSED?!!? WHEN?!? oh nvm they didn’t it’s an edit.
Step 4: See them as a romantically compatible couple.
Example: “sanvers sanvers Sanvers SANvers SANVERS SANVERS”
Step 5: Become conflicted. Cross ship people.
Example 5: Wanted Adam and Eve? What about Adam and Joanne? Oh, even better Eve and Joanne
**WARNING**: Only 97% of ships make it to Step 6
Step 6: It’s canon. The writers have heard your prayers.
Example 6: “And… Life’s too short. And we should kiss the girls we want to kiss. And I want to kiss you” YESS QUEEN GET YOUR BOO
Step 7: Enjoy your canon ship. Hell, make it one of your many OTPs
Example 7: 109. Korrasami… 110. Captain Canary… annnd 111. Sanvers!
******WARNING******* : IF YOUR SHIP IS IN A DANGEROUS SHOW, GAY, OR JUST REALLY HATED, ONE OF THEM WILL PROBABLY DIE
Bonus step (does not happen to every single canon ship): One character in your ship dies. Whether they were together for a long time or just for a few episodes, you will never get over them dying.
Example: The year is 2020. You’re happy with kids and a spouse. Then one day you remember the horrors… Lexa got shot by a STRAY FUCKING BULLET AND DIED.
Lexa died 5 years ago.
