Ship manifestos generally include nonfiction character studies of the characters involved, canon information and analysis about their interactions, as well as information about the fannish activity around the ship, including links to active communities and/or other fanworks recs. They sometimes include picspams as well.
Certain ship manifesto communities place restrictions on which kinds of ships are allowed, such as prohibiting age differences, incest or RPF. Other communities make a point of allowing all ships, when properly labeled.
