These tropes are about people getting involved in characters' romantic relationships. Since real-life people are infinitely more into pairing fictional people than fictional people are, most of these are AudienceReactions. For tropes actually dealing with ships, [[TropesAtSea please look here]]. For the shipping ''of'' tropes, consult the TropeCo catalog. Warning: [[HurricaneOfPuns loads of puns]] [[JustForPun head!]]
