Brie Larson was taking pictures with fans at Comic Con recently when one ultra-mega-super fan took the opportunity to propose to his boyfriend. This isn’t the first geek photo-op proposal we’ve seen–not that that makes it any less sweet!–but it’s Brie’s reaction that puts this over the top.

Look at her face! I hope you clicked through all the pictures because it is pure joy from start to finish.

Given her reaction, I doubt Larson would have had a problem stopping to chat with these two for a while but the proposer, John Chambrone, instead chose to hand her a note explaining why he picked this opportunity to pop the question to his boyfriend, Richard Owen.

According to Pink News, Chambrone posted a copy of the letter online, and it describes how much the character has always meant to him, and how their first “real date” was to see Captain Marvel.

“The movie meant a lot to us and I was so glad that he now shares my passion for the greatest superhero in all the known universes,” he wrote.
