"Ships" refers to a relationship between characters, generally a constructed one, although it can refer to a canon relationship.

If a fan or fic writer pairs one character with another, they are said to 'ship' them, eg. I ship Bobby and Dean.

Conflict between supporters of different ships can lead to shipping wars. A Ship that is privileged above all others is the OTP.

Ships are usually granted a mashup name, which is a portmanteau of the characters involved eg Destiel for Dean and Castiel. The pairing may also be written with a slash between them like John/Bobby - hence the term Slash.
