Shipping — that is the endorsement of a romantic relationship between unusual, sometimes even inappropriate, fictional characters — is a highly personal matter. Disregarding all the public fanfictions you’ve written, the numerous YouTube videos you’ve recut and set to Sarah McLachlan’s “Building a Mystery,” the erotic Tumblrs you’ve created, and the time you got into a fistfight while waiting in line for your Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 tickets, shipping is something you do in private while screaming about your feels. It’s a hard life, but somehow dreaming about the sexual awakening of two boy wizards makes it all worth it.
Well, shippers: parody music and comedy production group Not Literally has written the song of your people. Parodying the most unavoidable song of the summer, “I Ship it” is a ballad for all the implausible and nonsense ships that populate the Internet and our minds.
