We don’t care how many years it’s been since Christopher Meloni officially left the Law and Order: SVU cast — it will always be Benson and Stabler FOR LYFE! And this Valentine’s Day reunion pic of Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay has us falling to our knees and bowing down to the Insta gods.

If you’ll remember, the pair reunited for a reunion pic over the holidays, which sent our hearts into a flutter (and also, down a deep spiral of shipper longing that legitimately took several weeks to go away).

But this most recent social media share has us in what the medical world would call a “tizzy” (okay, not really…but just let us have it). It features a closed-eyed Hargitay receiving a goofy forehead kiss from a bearded Meloni.

SIGH. Actually, so. many. sighs.

Needless to say, we love absolutely everything about this pic, and especially love that it came right around V-Day. And just for old times’ sake, let’s take another look at that old X-mas snap:

Anyone else currently creating a fanfic vision board with these images on the floor of their bedroom?? Just us? We mean, yeah, neither are we!

But in all seriousness, we’re so glad to see definitive proof that these old coworkers are good friends IRL. They worked together day-in-and-day-out for a decade, so it gives us major feels to know they still take time to see each other and genuinely seem thrilled when they get to meet up.

Now let’s all raise our glasses (aka morning coffee mugs) to the best slightly more-than-partnership that ever there was: TO BENSON AND STABLER!
