  • Freighties/Freighter Folk: The people brought to the island by the Kahana freighter; mainly used to reference Daniel, Charlotte, Miles and Frank, but also includes the mercenaries lead by Keamy
  • the Others: The nickname given to the Island's native people by the Losties; synonymous with "the Hostiles"
  • the Hostiles: The nickname given to the Island's native people by the DI; synonymous with "the Others"
  • Socks/Red Shirts: Background characters (extras)

  • New Otherton: The suburb-like village originally built and used by the DI, but later taken over by Ben and the Hostiles/Others; later, it was the temporary homebase for Locke's group of survivors, and was destroyed by Keamy's team of mercenaries

  • Fanfic: Fan-written fiction involving the show's characters, storylines, etc.
  • Canon: Story elements that are considered genuine and officially sanctioned by the show's creative team. Saying something is "canonical," means that it's canon

Thanks. I see people say TPTB and I had an idea that it was Damon and Carlton but I was unsure.

I've always heard all these shippers talking about OTP and never knew what the hell it stood for. Tried asking a few times and never got an answer. Thanks for that, the only LOST term I think I had no idea what it stood for. Now that I know, I think it's pretty lame, but thanks for clearing it up.
