Shipping ain't easy. Unless you frequent Tumblr, in which case it's wayyy too easy to ship the hell out of people.
For those who aren't in the know, Tumblr (aka a delightful place for fandoms and where you can find any GIF at any time) has an official definition of "shipping," if you are so inclined to broaden your Internet mind:
Ship: (noun) Short for "relationship," an imagined romantic pairing of two people, fictional or otherwise.
Tumblr has released its year-end review of user activity, and the most interesting list is its top 20 list of Most Reblogged Ships. What's sort of shocking is that there is only one legitimate, non-fictional couple on there (it rhymes with "Timye"), but the number one most shipped couple will come as a surprise to absolutely no one.
Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins), or Destiel if you're nasty, from the long-running CW show Supernatural is the number one most reblogged ship of 2014. Color us not shocked! Everyone loves those two.
