People like to pair or ship someone they favour (or just anyone really) with another character they think would be more suitable for them; as in to be romantically linked. For example, take Fairy Tail - some fans ship Natsu with Lucy, or even Natsu with Gray.

shipping terminologies:

shipping: two characters (or more) that you want to see hook up or form a relationship

OTP: one true pairing (your ultimate pairing and one you care most about)
slash: shipping two same sexed characters that are not gay. the most famous example is NarutoxSasuke

Tom felton, aka draco malfoy's actor, is doing a show about fans. One of his questions was shipping when a fan told him about a ship with draco and the apple in movie 6.

It's become a fan thing to basically choose two or more characters/beings/objects in some cases and basically they want them to be together. Some write fanfiction as a alternative divergent in the plot or as a continuation of the story if their ship was indeed canon.

It's not only a sign of how passionate some fans are of the show they love but also how rejective fans can be. Some willingly except that some things don't pan out how they thought the story was going, while others reject the story after a certain point believing their version to be the true continuation.
It's down to the individual, it's ok if they want to write/do their own fandom on the story. It only becomes an issue when a few people decide to mock/insult some fans over the franchise. I.E if they like ship 1, then they actually hate the rest of the franchise. There's no need for such negativity amongst fellow fans. It comes down to individuals, whether they're willing to except things are not perfect/go their way or not.
