Most of us know what it means to “ship” two people. It means you want two people to get together or stay together, whether said couple is in a show, book, movie, or real life. Popular ships on TV include Delena (Damon and Elena from Vampire Diaries), Klaine (Kurt and Blaine from Glee), and Ezria (Ezra and Aria on Pretty Little Liars). Real life people who also have been labelled with a “ship name” include “Monchele” (Cory Monteith and Lea Michele), ” Nian” (Nina Dobrev and Ian Somelhalder),” Brangelina” (no explanation neccesary) and even “Larry Stylinson.” Yes. Thats Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.
We want to take a second to make it very clear that people who are “shipped” are not ALWAYS an item, it simply means people like the idea of the two together. It’s also common for two people who aren’t together – i.e. Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, to be “shipped.” It’s all in good fun and we get some hilarious and entertaining gifs and photoshopped (or as shippers call the photos, “manips”). Sometimes fans draw pictures of the real life subjects. I only wish I had that kind of time on my hands.
Harry Styles of One Direction for one, seems to be shipped with everyone imaginable. Take a look at some of the people that fans want to see Styles with. Please note these are all “manips”
1) Selena Gomez – “Helena”
2) Lilly Collins- “Hilly”
3) Miley Cyrus – “Hiley”
4) Chris Colfer – “Charry”
5) Lady Gaga – “Lady Styles”
6) Justin Bieber – “Stieber”
7) Nathan Sykes – “Narry” Read more…
