The best type of ships are the ones that take seasons to actually happen.
They keep the audience on the edge of their seats and sometimes just seeing them stand next to each other is enough to ignite your inner fangirl.

It takes serious dedication to stick with a slow burn ship. In fact, we've included a few that are still waiting patiently in their ports.
But if you can stand the wait, these relationships are almost always worth the investment.
Check out our slideshow below of 31 ships that took seasons to sail!
Jane and Rafael - Jane the Virgin
Whether you're Team Rafael or Team Michael, it definitely took a while for these two to get together. However, given the most recent events of the show, we don't have a clue what's in store for them next.
Barney and Robin - How I Met Your Mother
No one expected Barney and Robin to fall for each other at the beginning of the series. On the outside, they seemed like they were complete opposites, but the more we got to know them, the more their relationship made sense.
Eric and Nell - NCIS: Los Angeles
Eric and Nell somehow manage to be extremely badass together and extremely adorable together. And we wouldn't change a thing about them.
Lucifer and Chloe - Lucifer
These two have been denying their feelings for far too long and everyone can see it. Thankfully, they finally seem to be seeing it themselves.
Oliver and Felicity - Arrow
Oliver and Felicity have it all. Slow burn, angst, break-ups, and make-ups! Even though it may have taken a while for them to get there, they're finally where they belong. With each other.
Charles and Liza - Younger
Charles and Liza didn't become a thing until a little later on in the series. But if we're being honest, we're still more on Team Josh.
