Anyone is welcome to enter, but it'd be best if you're a fan of chick-lit ;)
Shipping is international.
So common phrases seen when discussing books are OTP and BROtp; these stand for One True Pairing (this is often romantic) and Bro True Pairing (this is often used for friendships,but only the best ones!) and honestly the best relationships are both. In addition, you can "ship" to characters in a relationship without them being your OTP. A lot of people might use sismance for female friendships, but I just use BROtp for both genders.
