It’s the reunion of Buffy and Angel that fans always wanted – just briefer, more Twitter-specific and entirely lacking in wooden stakes.

Angel’s romance with “The Chosen One” might have fizzled out years ago, but Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz‘s off-screen friendship is still going strong – much to the delight of Buffy the Vampire Slayer geeks everywhere.

After the Bones star, 45, Tweeted Happy Birthday to his former costar, who turned 38 on Tuesday, she responded by calling him “always my #angel.”

The exchange sparked hundreds of retweets from fans of the Joss Whedon show happy to see that their two favorite characters are still in touch.

Now if they could just get a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie made…
