(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.
Primary relationships form the basis for key storylines on the show, or represent well-established or married couples.
Secondary relationships include fleeting, uncertain, or underdeveloped pairings referenced by the show.
The following couples sat together as the series closed and characters moved on from the afterlife. Many of these relationships awoke characters to their states and reminded them of their lives on the island.
