A.) In internet Slang, Shipping, derived from the word "relationship", is a general term for fans' emotional and/or intellectual involvement with the ongoing development of romance in a work of fiction. Though technically applicable to any such involvement, it refers chiefly to various related social dynamics observable on the Internet, and is seldom used outside of that context.

Shipping can involve virtually any kind of relationship - from the well-known and established, to the ambiguous or those undergoing development, and even to the highly improbable and the blatantly impossible. People involved in shipping (or shippers) assert that the relationship does exist, will exist, or simply that they would like it to exist.

B.) In regards to other meanings, it can mean:

1 a : passage on a ship b : ships c : the body of ships in one place or belonging to one port or country

2 : the act or business of one that ships

not sure what you are asking, but the most commen Internet explanation is: it means making a relationship between two characters from a story, book or, movie. EX: a Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy romance story would be considered a "Drarry Ship" ... Draco + Harry = Drarry, and SHIP = relationship. A Harry/ Draco relationship. There are many anime and book examples but personally I am not well versed enough to answer beyond my example. Good luck!
