If there were a gold medal for inspiring the people of the internet to bust out their A-game, Canadian ice dance darlings Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir would have won that, too.
PyeongChang gold medal champions Virtue and Moir are the most-decorated figure skaters in Olympic history, but that's not the only reason the world is utterly obsessed. The duo, who swear they're not romantically involved (other than a brief childhood romance ... which we will CLING TO WITH ALL THE HOPE IN THE WORLD), bring so much passion to the ice that it's impossible to imagine they're not ridiculously in love.
Or at least, you know, making out.
The duo have even inspired their own romantic fan fiction from those unwilling to accept their "just friends" status (oh, stop it, you two). And while they set a few records during their skates, they set an impressive record off the ice, too: 4.3 million people tuned in to watch their gold medal moment on Feb. 19 — the most-watched moment of the Games to date, according to CBC.
The world can't get enough!
Here are some of our favourite reactions from online fans of the couple who isn't really a couple:
