Hello dear SISters, how are you? I hope you are all well!
Today another column will premiere just for you! Yep, one more column, and no, we are not crazy! We actually have a feeling you are gonna love this one as we will talk about the our favorite thing to do… SHIPPING!
Yes, that’s right. Go disinfect your bathroom with bleach and prepare that special drink, caipirinha, cause we will dive into the shipper universe.
But SIS, what is shipping?
Many of our new shippers contacted us to say they didn’t even know what it was until they entered the incredible world of Sam&Cait shippers.
But the truth is that shipping is a very old thing and most of us have always done it, except we never knew the appropriate term.
On TV, in the movies, in books and even in comics, there have always been many couples that made us sigh and wish they were together in real life.
Well that’s shipping.
Definition of shipping: A verb used to describe the action of wishing for two people to enter a relationship (whether romantic or occasionally platonic) in books, movies, tv shows or real life. Shipping can often happen involuntarily, and it is the majority of what happens on the website, Tumblr. There are some very popular ships, some unpopular, as well as often lots of controversy between ships from the same fandom.

Shipping is a neologism. The term was created to encourage certain characters (especially fiction) to establish a relationship. Of course, this does not mean that fans of real people can’t hope for a possible relationship.
In fact, although the word seems to be recent for many, the practice of “shipping” already appeared in the 1970s with the Star Trek series, where fans rooted for a relationship between Kirk and Spock, giving them the pet name of “K/S”.
Meanwhile, in the United States, the X-files made the term “shipping” very popular – fans cheered for the two main characters, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully to be together.
