In the Slash Madness article which details our baby Sterek’s epic win over veteran ship Desteil (who were gracious in second place) After Elton also mentions their new completely slash devoted WEEKLY column, The Shipping News (which I keep wanting to call the shipping forecast because I was born in Grimsby where people actually listen to the shipping forecast).
A large and well respected website is devoting a whole column, every week, to non-cannon (though it will probably include some cannon as well) slash shipping news.
I am so excited about this. I am going to read it every week and I hope you all will too and we can make it a weekly discussion point.

Last week, the planet Jupiter appeared to sustain a major impact from a comet or asteroid,“saving” Earth from a potential collision with the object in the process.
In response, fans on Tumblr did what they do best, and turned Jupiter/Earth into an OTP—a One True Pairing—and the Milky Way into a fandom.
Oh, sorry, we meant Jupitearth. That’s the combined name for the pairing of Jupiter and Earth, who are imagined in this scenario to be people. So far, the new fandom is ignoring any long-distance elements to their relationship.
