[=BroTP=] is used as a term for [[PlatonicLifePartners non]]-[[HeterosexualLifePartners romantic]] [=OTP=]s.

[=BroTP=] is used as a term for [[PlatonicLifePartners non]]-[[HeterosexualLifePartners romantic]] [=OTP=]s.
[=OTP=]s, of the "these people are best friends and no one will tell me otherwise" variety (for instance, John Sheridan and Susan Ivanova of ''Series/BabylonFive''). Male/female and female/female [=BroTP=]s are sometimes also called [=FrOTP=]s.

In some cases, holding their preferred characters to completely different standards than the official pairing is an excellent mark of OTP shippers. If someone argues that you need to show that X and Y got married to prove they're in love, and the rings on their fingers [[AntiGoggles don't count]], but they know that X and Z love each other because of '[[ShippingGoggles chemistry]]', they're definitely defending their OTP.

OTP [[ShipToShipCombat shipping wars]] are second only to SubbingVersusDubbing for heat and violence. The degree of fanaticism displayed for a particular OTP may be proportional to their distance from the OfficialCouple and/or the WordOfGod for the work in question.

Often the term "OTP" is used {{sarcas|mMode}}tically in parody of shipping, especially if it involves an [[CargoShip unconventional]] [[CrackPairing pairing]], or a character and their [[TrademarkFavoriteFood favorite food]] ("[[Series/{{Heroes}} Hiro/Waffles OTP]]"), etc etc.
