(Fan created content. Distinct from hoaxes and parodies)

Pairings are relationships, either enacted or implied, that fans enjoy and discuss actively. The desire for love to blossom on the Island between several pairs of characters, to varying degrees of commitment and affection is explored further in fan fiction.

Such fan-made nicknames for pairings are also more generally known as 'ships (short for "relationships"). In addition to the canonical couples listed here, there are many fan-made pairings popular amongst Lost shippers.

The fan created portmanteau name for each pair is provided in parentheses. For example, Jate is the ship name for Jack and Kate, taking the J from Jack and replacing the K from Kate with it.
