Just when you thought Hollywood couldn’t love Stranger Things and its child stars more, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda got in on the fun with an adorable Twitter exchange with actor Gaten Matarazzo.

Miranda, who tweets out inspirational messages to his followers at the beginning and end of each day, got the ball rolling Thursday morning with a GIF of Matarazzo flashing his signature grin and the message, “Good morning. Your smile is worth a fortune, and yours to spend as you wish.”

Matarazzo, like any good fan, responded with a star-struck “OMG, I just died! Thanks, man.” But the two didn’t stop the good vibes there: Miranda retweeted Matarazzo, adding “No you LIVED! YOU’RE SO GOOD!” To which Matarazzo tweeted back an excited, “I wish I could “like” this a million times.”

Miranda followed that with a gif of the late Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka in 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factoryshaking his hands and proclaiming “You won!”
