Turns out that all the sexual tension fans felt between Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie Sawyer (Fiorana Lima) during Maggie's first appearance on "Supergirl" was totally on purpose — and oh boy, was it worth it. 

Not only has Alex come out to her friends and family over the course of the past few episodes (in one of the most amazing, relatable, powerful coming out scenes we've seen on television in years), but as of Monday night's episode, she and Maggie are officially a couple. 

Which means that fans are freaking out in the best way they know how: with fanart.

And a lot of that fanart is of their amazing first kiss.

Plus every moment BEFORE kissing, because those are also important.

And inspirational kissing quotes!

Along with the occasional gay joke.

It's okay to use "gay" as a perjorative if you're an actual gay person yourself, doing it with loving irony.

There's a lot of staring into each other's eyes.

Like, DEEP in each other's eyes, though.

And every single bit of it is perfect.

There's also dorky overly-supportive Kara Danvers, too, for when the shipping feelings get to be too much.

Sometimes you just need a break.

And a lot of talking about feelings.

And FALLING ASLEEP on each other? Oh no, that's too cute.

Let's hope the fanart never stops.
