Over the weekend, a perfect superstorm of vanilla scented-basic converged over Australia: Taylor Swift and Blake Lively hung out.

Since Lively is currently filming her new thriller The Shallows in New South Wales, and Ms. Swift is making the down-under leg of her 1989 tour, they decided to meet up.

And pet kangaroos!

And jump up into the air!

It's hard to believe, but the two never actually came back down to the ground again; they exist now in some hanging purgatory, between the earth and stratosphere; drifting, and drifting, and drifting.

It was only a matter of time before Blake would officially be inducted into Taylor's oppressively homogeneous squad, even amidst the social media-fabricated beef the two had a few months prior, that was squashed immediately.

Regardless, let's reflect on this wonderfully saccharine union, and why it was so necessary to happen.

Here are 35 reasons why Taylor and Blake are perfect friends:
