What does NOTP stand for in fandom?

Not one true pairing

Superfans use NOTP to state that another fan's ship is not their one true pairing (OTP). The fan using NOTP likely has their own preferred pairing, which they believe is a better match.

For example, in a forum post discussing Batman's relationships, a user might say "Bruce and Zatanna is NOTP. She's too out there for him; he's better off with someone more grounded like Catwoman or Talia." This fan believes Batman and Zatanna are not a good couple, and that Bruce's relationships with Catwoman and Talia al Ghul are more realistic (for some definition of that word).


Rose and Pearl are NOTP; Rose is too oblivious to Pearl's feelings
