1 Days Left to Support a Troper-Created Project : Personal Space (discuss)

Shipper On Deck / Fan Works

  • Pops up a few times in Cinderjuice in regards to Beetlejuice and Lydia. Donny, BJ's brother, outright calls himself this in regards to the pairing. He's joined there by Prince Vince and Lydia's friends Prudence and Bertha, and... pretty much everyone who knows them, really.

  • Rukia in Getting It Right ships Ichigo and Orihime hard, to the point that she often takes pictures of them being (unknowingly) adorable together and calls it her Ichihime collection.

The Chronicles of Narnia
  • In The Fledgling Year, many of the girls who are supposed to be Cor’s potential brides don’t bother trying to ingratiate themselves—not because they don’t like him, but because it’s obvious to everyone but him that he’s in love with Aravis. Hana particularly outright says that it’s ridiculous to think of anyone but Aravis marrying Cor, and periodically gives her advice on their relationship.


Death Note


Doctor Who

  • In "Epistolary: The Fifty Years Before You Were Born", River Song recalled in one chapter her efforts to get Amy and Rory together as teens. Justified in her case, as she would never have existed if they didn't get together.
    "Do you know how many tires I had to slash, how many boys I had to threaten, how many dates I had to turn down just to make the way clear for the two of you to finally see each other for what you were? Half the fights I got into at school in some way involved you lot. But that's ok, that's what I wanted. The two of you belong together and not just because it was necessary to maintain the timeline, complete the paradox and create me, but because you truly love each other."

Dragon Age: Origins
  • In Shadow And Rose, Leliana is a confirmed Alistair/Warden shipper from a very early point in the story. Wynne eventually joins her in this; most of the others just sort of roll their eyes.

Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy
  • Nathan Kedd Goldberg (or Nat), an OC created by C2ndy2cid, has been adopted by the Tumblr fandom as the captain of the Kevedd ship. With fairly good reason.

  • In the Fallout 3 fan fiction Trouble, Johnny Saint the legendary vault dweller can see the chemistry going on between Harkness and Butch, and casually offers Harkness advice on how to deal with Butch's emotions.

Final Fantasy

Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Lissa and Sumia support Frederick/Robin after realizing the two are spending a lot of time together in Pretender. Justified in Sumia's case, she knows that Robin has feelings for her husband Chrom and hopes that if Robin moves on, Chrom will stop being obsessed with Robin.
  • Lucina Reacts: Everyone, for everyone- or rather, almost everyone for almost everyone. For specifics:
    • Almost everyone for Lucina and Robin, although Sumia and Reflet are the primary shippers apart from the Cabal. Sumia's true motive is revealed, while Reflet's is far more altruistic.
    • The Justice Cabal drives most of the shipping. Their primary targets are the above Lucina and Robin, Lon'qu and Cordelia (although they were revealed to have been an Official Couple long before the story began) and Gangrel and Emmeryn.
    • Reflet's a special case: she ships the ships that would make both participants happy, due to wanting everyone to be happy.

Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Pretty much everyone in the Elemental Chess Trilogy is a Shipper on Deck for Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye, though probably no one more than Grumman. Flashbacks in the second story and several incidents in the prequel indicate that the shipping has been happening for years.

Harry Potter

  • Lereal Belsai, the Sufferist leader in Hivefled, was horrified to find that Nepeta broke up with Karkat when her kismesissitude with his best friend Sollux got in the way, as he thought they would follow in the footsteps of their respective ancestors. Nepeta, the Homestuck canon's resident Shipper On Deck, is horrified by his idea of her and Karkat being in a relationship which transcends the quadrants; not only does she not want to be left without her kismesis and moirail, but it would make her own shipping wall a lot more boring. Gamzee, meanwhile, becomes a Shipper On Deck for Feferi and Sollux's moirallegiance, fearing that he will be stuck with Feferi in a Pair the Spares situation and repeat the relationship of their ancestors. (Their shared ancestors, to be specific. Moirails reproducing is a taboo equivalent to human incestuous reproduction, but Condesce and the Grand Highblood did it anyway.)
  • Nepeta's shipping wall and ways are Deconstructed in Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood, where she's oblivious to Eridan's flushed feelings for her and tries to set him up with his moirail Feferi. This eventually leads to her discovering that she doesn't understand Eridan enough to be a true moirail, while Feferi is not pleased with Nep seemingly trying to steal her moirail away, and just how manipulative and controlling this makes her appear to them.

The Hunger Games
  • There are multiple Shippers on Deck in Some Semblance of Meaning: Fen implies that she wishes Vale had been born in District Five so she and Fen's brother Lark could have gotten together, whereas Vale's sister Laurel is shown to be a wholehearted supporter of Vale/Obsidian (and she's not alone).


Kim Possible
  • Many fanfics have the characters (Kim and Ron's parents and the kids in school) be this for Kim and Ron, even before they were an Official Couple. It was also acknowledged that some assumed that they were already a couple beforehand.

Kung Fu Panda

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Lost Girl
  • In Where The Eyes Of The Old Gods Can't Hope To Find Us, Kenzi (as in the show) ships Dyson/Bo despite Bo dating Lauren. Deconstructed when Lauren calls her on it, by pointing out how that makes her feel. In fact, as Lauren points out, everyone ships Bo with someone other than her. Trick, Kenzi, and of course Dyson himself all want her with Dyson. Hale wants her with a Light Fae, to sway her into joining the Light.
Mai Hime
  • Deconstructed in Perfection Is Overrated, in which Bachiko, as well as her accomplice Meiko not only has the opinion that certain characters would be better off with other people, but as a SUE, has the power to make those desired couples a reality.

Medaka Box
  • In World As Myth, Yobuko gets very excited pairing her male classmates together as more than friends.

Love Hina
  • For His Own Sake plays with this a few different ways:
    • Played straight with how Isana supports Nagisa and Keitaro getting together after noting how close they've become.
    • Mutsumi wants nothing more than to help Naru and Keitaro hook up. Too bad this means constantly ignoring Keitaro's insistence that he doesn't want anything else to do with the violently abusive Naru. Her continued attempts to 'help' completely destroy their friendship.
    • Rich Bitch Kagura is a rare villainous version: she specificially wants Nagisa and Keitaro to get together so it'll be even more painful for Nagisa to lose him.


My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
  • In Duel Nature, both Luna and Reinolds can tell that Twilight Sparkle and Bronze Bell are interested each other, and encourage Twilight to do something about it.
  • Earth and Sky: Rarity plays matchmaker for Applejack and Soarin' and Apple Bloom and Pipsqueak, and takes things to almost Chessmaster levels of planning.
  • The Elements of Harmony and the Savior of Worlds: Applejack and Mike actively try and play matchmaker between Fluttershy and Big Macintosh (AJ's actually been trying for years, hampered by Fluttershy's shyness and Big Mac not feeling good enough for her). Granny Smith eventually gets in on the act, complaining that the two of them have been laying it on too thick.
    • Big Mac appears to be this for Caramel (Big Mac, AJ and Applebloom's cousin in the fanfic) and Blues Noteworthy.
  • Rarity, and to a lesser extent Rainbow Dash, decides to help things along between Fluttershy and Pencil Pusher in Flash Fog.
  • Spike becomes this in parts of It Takes a Village, first prodding Fluttershy and Big Macintosh together. In the epilogue he's finding a new date for Rarity and also working on getting together Pinkie Pie and Caramel.
  • In Magnetism, Rarity apparently starts shipping Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash after hearing about their awkward bath together.
    • Apparently is replaced with blatantly in the last chapter when she and Pinkie try to erect a banner with Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash's face with a heart between them outside the Golden Oaks Library. Applejack, however, talks them into taking it down before either shipped pony can see it.
  • In The Melting Pot, a good part of the action is set off by Pinkie Pie telling Lyra and Bon-Bon they make a cute couple just before going on a trip. In the final chapter, Pinkie turns out to be subtly setting up several budding romances between background characters from the show.
  • It's shown during Shining Armor's flashback arc in the Pony POV Series that Cadence's hoofmaidens and at least some of Shining's squadmates shipped the two of them prior to their getting together. And they weren't subtle about it. At all.
    • Shining and Cadence themselves both get their own, more mild, examples of this — Cadence is working with the hoofmaidens to set up Private Running Gag and Private Garnet Chambers, while Shining has said on a couple of occasions that Captive Audience is the stallion he feels would be the best match for Twilight.
  • Pinkie Pie ships Rainbow Dash and Sunny Breeze in Racer and the Geek
  • Shipping and Handling's basic plot is that, currently employed as a matchmaker, Derpy Hooves has to play Shipper on Deck for each of her assignments (with her first being Spike asking for an excuse for private time with Rarity).
  • Taken up to eleven in with Rarity in the fanfic Shipping Goggles. Rarity apparently has a pair of the eponymous goggles welded to her head, as even the most innocent of interactions is treated as prime shipping fuel by the white unicorn, much to the frustration of Twilight, who can see Rarity shipping their friends.
  • In the Ponies Of Olympus series, as revealed in Atlas Strongest Tournament, Sweetie Belle ships Spike with her sister, while Apple Bloom ships him with Scootaloo.
  • The Nuptialverse: A Running Gag in Families is that Pinkie Pie is convinced that Applejack and Twilight are in denial about their true feelings for each other.
  • Cadance tends to do this in Diaries of a Madman, much to Navarone's frustration.
  • In Reality Checks Nyxverse, Nyx (and all of Twilight's friends) are this for her and Ink Spot. And then it turns out that Celestia engineered their meeting, because she remembered that Ink Spot is Twilight's type.
  • Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy for Applejack and Rainbow Dash in Morning Glory. They slip them the Apples' "honeymoon cider" which was meant for Fluttershy, not that she needed it.
  • Parodied in Tealove's Steamy Adventure. Big Jim the cave troll captures the ponies and treats them like toys. This includes shouting "SHIP PONAYS!" as he picks up Tealove and Snowcatcher, then tries to make them kiss. The other pony, Libra (who's not entirely right in the head), immediately agrees that they have such great chemistry together.
  • This is the entire premise of the fanmade card game Twilight Sparkle's Secret Shipfic Folder. There's also an expansion pack which makes Discord the author instead.

  • In Naruto Veangance Revelaitons, an odd variant of this happens when Ronan's girlfriend Sakura, meets Atni for the first time (While Sakura was dead after being killed by the Council, Ronan met Atni and had sex with her several times).
  • Tsunade and Hanabi ship Naru Hina in A Growing Affection. Tsunade offers to train Naruto and Hinata together, partly to help them get stronger, but also to give them a reason to spend time together. Hanabi is more than willing to run interference for Hinata with their family, at least until she gets angry at Naruto for an unrelated incident.
  • Kushina in New Chance. Considering how when she died she became a ghost that hovered around Naruto until Time Travel and a resurrection happened, she tries to make him happy and thusly ships Naru Hina. To an unhealthy degree. If Minato wasn't around reminding her the two are only 12 and stopping some of her more blatant or outlandish attempts to get them together, she'd be giving both a Shotgun Wedding.

Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • A Crown Of Stars: A good number of characters ship Shinji and Asuka together.
    • Their Avaloni allies and friends (including the freaking God Emperors of the place) spent a bunch of chapters encouraging them to get over their fears and traumas and trying to get together.
    • The returned members of the Evangelion cast (Misato, Kaji, Hikaru, Touji...) were happy to see them together.
    • When they met Rei and Kaworu the latter smiled when he saw Shinji and Asuka holding hands. The former... not so much.
  • Advice And Trust:
    • Misato shipped Shinji and Asuka together (the fic started as an one-shot story where Misato encouraged Shinji to win Asuka over and gave him tips). Kaji also ships them together, and even Rei. The hilarious part is how Shinji and Asuka are now acting as they used to and leaving them to just assume that the pilots are still deep in the Belligerent Sexual Tension phase, when they are in fact very together.
    • Shinji and Asuka also ship their best friends Touji and Hikari. And after getting over her crush (in part thanks to Shinji), Asuka encouraged Misato to going out with Kaji.
  • Evangelion 303:
  • HERZ: Rei supported Shinji/Asuka and made sure that they got together and became happy.
  • In Neon Genesis Evangelion Genocide:
    • Hikari ships Shinji and Asuka together.
    • Misato also ships Shinji and Asuka, although she'd settle for them learning how to get along well.
  • Nobody Dies: Rei was apparently shipping Shinji/Asuka ten years before the three of them even met each other. She also somehow hooked up Toji and Hikari during the unseen Third Angel fight, and now claims to be shipping Shinji/Asuka's and Toji/Hikari's hypothetical future children. This seems to be a universal trait among the Ree (they all ship Shinji/Asuka, except Zyuu, who wants Shinji for herself), and Lilith herself seems to ship everyone/everyone as part of her desire for babies.
  • In The Second Try:
    • Misato is a Shinji/Asuka shipper. Ironically she doesn’t know that they already got together.
    • Hikari tries to hint Shinji that Asuka likes him. Ironically she doesn’t know that he’s quite aware of it since he's her husband.
    • Shinji and Asuka ship Touji and Hikari -and played matchmaker for them successfully-, and they secretly ship Misato and Kaji.

  • Lilia from the remakes of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire returns in Dating A Team Magma Grunt and is introduced by Brendan to his girlfriend. While it is tame at first, and she admits her plan to get the Magma and Aqua Grunts to compete in a competition for Brendan was more out of hosting a contest with more participants rather than shipping him with a specific girl, she's clearly loving the moment he and the Magma Grunt share their first kiss.

Power Rangers
  • This is pretty much the entire point of Of Love and Bunnies. All of the original Power Rangers and, eventually, all of the Rangers want Tommy and Kim to get back together.
  • Practically everyone in Power Rangers GPX ships Red Ranger Sean and Yellow Ranger Maria (except for Pink Ranger Hitomi). They (Sean and Maria) eventually get together. Maria in turn, ships Gold Ranger Ritchie and his Love Interest Janet Redwater and former antagonists-turned good guys Arquen and Eruvanda, who are already in a relationship.

Star Trek
  • Most of the humour in the fic Written in the Stars (in which the Kirks of both realities have been genderswapped) comes from Kirk Prime trying to get her counterpart to hook up with Spock. This is justified in that Kirk Prime and Spock Prime were married in their own reality, and Kirk Prime just wants her counterpart to be happy. She succeeds.
  • The Wrong Reflection has Eleya's family, for her and Gaarra. Note that at this point Eleya and Gaarra are already together, but they're keeping the relationship a secret for legal reasons.
    Kanril Torvo: So, when are you two getting married? (Spit Take from Eleya)

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • "A New Life Era": "The Hacker" is this for his son. He eventually gets his way.

  • A blogger rewrote Can You Feel The Love Tonight from a shipper's perspective- specifically, that of Nora Valkyrie as she spies on Jaune and Pyrrha.
    The sweet caress of twilight
    There’s magic everywhere
    And with all this romantic atmosphere-
    God, why don’t they just kiss?!
  • As of the show's second volume, it is now canon that Nora ships Jaune/Pyrrha.
  • Trials of a Workaholic features Yang and Blake shipping, with rather more vehemence than most examples.
    "I will kill both of you!” Pyrrha snapped as she covered her phone. “With my bare hands!”
  • RWBY Reckoning has Blake and Ruby supporting Yang and Darrel's attraction to each other. Blake outright states that the two would make a cute couple.
  • The fic Matchmaking Madness has all of Team RWBY as this for Jaune and Pyrrha; all four of them attempt a Zany Scheme to get the two to hook up. While all of their attempts fail, the two still end up becoming a couple, thanks to the efforts of Cardin, who happens to be this for them as well.
  • Weiss Reacts has Yang for Ruby and Weiss. Due to the events of the Music Festival, the pair becomes a reality as of chapter 72 of Volume 1.
  • Exaggerated in the fic Team RWBY: Master Matchmakers, where Ruby is so hell-bent on getting Jaune and Pyrrha together that she convinces the entire student body to help her.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Total Drama

  • In Things We Don’t Tell Humans, Optimus Prime is this for Bumblebee and Barricade, and perhaps for Sam and Carly, too. Jazz and Prowl have a whole fleet of shippers, consisting of their son, Jazz’ parents, Ratchet, Optimus and Elita, Megatron, Terratron, and likely more. Prowl, in turn, ships Ratchet and Wheeljack.

  • In Ripples, Queen Weira is shown to constantly be hoping that Phobos and Van will have a Relationship Upgrade, even at one point mentally referring to the latter as her "future daughter-in-law".

  • The Gaang Jr. fan-project gives us Yi Lin, a walking riff on the Avatar fandom's shipping community. She's obsessed with other people's love lives and hides all her collected "Proof" in a book supposedly about...well, ships. She's a Tyzula fangirl in particular, although she can't get other people to see it (and if they ever do see it, they're not going to tell her since it would just make her harder to live with). Fittingly, she refuses to see that there's something going on between Irah and Hayoda.
  • In the Axis Powers Hetalia/Ace Attorney crossover Turnabout Hero, Hungary seems interested in shipping Edgeworth and Phoenix. At one point, she even snaps a picture of them sitting together and thinks it's cute. Given that it's Hungary, no ones surprised.
  • In the Ranma ˝ Elsewhere Fic Boy Scouts ˝, Kirstin Porter ships her older sister Sarah with Matthew Atanian, who holds unrequited affection for her.
  • In the Fire Emblem Awakening fic Lucina Reacts, Morgan and Sumia ship Robin with Lucina. Morgan also ships several other couples, including Lon'qu and Cordelia, and seems to be aiming to ship everyone with everyone at some point.
  • In the Hey Arnold! fanfiction Oh Rhonda, Phoebe and Nadine like the idea of Rhonda having a crush on Arnold and try to push them together as best as they could. Likewise, Rhonda and Nadine ship Phoebe with Gerald.
  • In the Soulsborne note  crossover comedy fic Hotspring Souls!'', Solaire is one for the Chosen Undead/Rhea of Thorolund. The Slayer of Demons ships them as well.
  • In this The Most Popular Girls in School fanfic, Date, Trisha ships Mackenzie/Brittnay.
  • It's not the Raptor DNA has Elise the Indominus Rex nudging Kindly Vet Jackie towards Lowery as best as she can manage for being a giant dinosaur. She succeeds, and the two humans hit off rather well.
  • As of Chapter 22 of Infinity, Amaterasu is a supporter of Susanoo/Fate. Neither of them were terribly happy about it.
