ash’s instant switch from “i have go get you back to the discovery because those are my orders” to “okay let me find a way to help you” after michael says “i can’t fight you too” while they’re looking for sarek is such an important moment!
like, five minutes ago he was like “excuse me i thought i was lorca’s favorite but he just told me to not come back without burnham so what is the truth” jealous and, well, jealousy won out for like .5 seconds before he was like “okay but actually friends time now”
ash is so good and soft and kind and warm-hearted, as soon as michael needed help figuring out how to get through to sarek, he doubled down and helped her through it
and he figured out how to help her through compassion, through his own personal past traumatic experiences, and he did it, he helped her save the day, he supported her and was there for her and honestly like? that’s so important
“You think about who you love” LOVE! ash is gonna save the day with LOVE!
anyway i love ash tyler and michael burnham (and sylvia tilly also) and they are all good humans with good hearts and i love the new trio i would die for them! thanks!
