#Stelena is real, everybody! In case you’re still crying over the fact that The Vampire Diaries ended last year, we’ve got something that will put a smile on your face. Die-hard TVD fans know that on the show Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gibert were destined to always find each other. Now, we’re convinced that Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev are actual doppelgängers. The two have reunited once again in New York City this week and blessed us with yet another EPIC selfie!

“Excuse me sir, you look familiar. I feel like we’ve met before. Maybe in a past life?,” Nina wrote on Instagram. Doesn’t seeing them together make your heart so full? She also shared the same photo on Twitter, writing, “Ran into this guy who looks exactly like my old costar @paulwesley! Wait…”

Though Paul didn’t post his own selfie, he did comment a heart emoji on Nina’s pic. Fans, on the other hand – including Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr – lost all chill over their reunion. They’ve been tweeting everything from “nina and paul hanging out is truly making me weep” to “The universe knows it was huge mistake not making Stelena endgame because Nina and Paul keep running into each other.”

Nina and Paul’s surprise hangout is actually the second reunion they’ve had in the last few months. The former co-stars also shared photos in December after they met up in New York City. “NYC when it’s snowing is full of serendipitous run-ins and magical reunions. Like this one!” Nina wrote at the time. We don’t know what more perfect, Nina’s captions or #Dobsley’s selfies? We’re obsessed.

On the show, Nina’s character ended up with Ian Somerhalder‘s character, Damon. But, can you imagine if, at the end of all this, #Stelena does get together IRL?! We literally can’t even process that idea – especially because we were ALL #Nian stans when Nina and Ian were actually dating. But now that Ian’s happily paired off with Nikki Reed, it seems like a fairly incredible idea. It’s safe to say that Nina and Paul would make #Stelena shippers the happiest fandom ever. For now, though, we have any and all other friendship-y reunions to look forward to.

Who knows, maybe Paul and Nina will make a surprise appearance on the new TVD spin-off, Legacies when it premieres this fall. We know what you’re thinking: Stefan died in the series finale, so how could he possibly come back without causing major plot holes? … have you seen the show?! People die and come back to life all the time. If anyone can conceive a plausible-ish storyline where that would happen, it’s Julie Plec.

We’re not going to get ahead of ourselves here. After all, Nina and Paul are busy with other projects. Nina will appear in the new CBS comedy Fam and Paul has been focusing on his directorial skills. Even if they never appear on screen together (or never become a couple IRL), we’re completely satisfied with Instagram reunions like the ones Nina and Paul keep having every couple of months <3.
