    It means the original work supports that particular ship. If two characters are seen, or at least implied to have hooked up in the original work, then the ship is canon.

    Shipping is any couple that one pairs into a relationship. (Relationship -> Relation"shipping") Crack pairing is any pairing that makes absolutely no sense, story wise (For example, let's say Goku and Frieza in Dragonball Z. This pairing would make NO sense, but I'd bet you my right foot it exists on the internet somewhere). Canon means true to the story. Two people who are actually together in the story (not just suggested that they like each other or anything like that, truly together) is a canon relationship.

    It's a relationSHIP that has gone CANON. Personally I'd call it married, but the world seems to have moved on from the simpler times of the past.

    JoyeuxNoel did a wonderful job of explaining it in a blog entry a few years back.

    Canon: official pairing, they are lovers/married in the story. Crack pairing: characters that almost never interacted with each other, "impossible" or bizzare, yet fans pair them together. Shipping: when you pair two characters together, for example :"I ship Kanda Yu and Lavi from D.Gray-Mam" it means that I support this pairing.

    It means that their ship or pairing is together. They are officially together.
