Hotch went to Seaver’s graduation because he knew nobody would be there for her and everyone deserves to have someone watch them walk across the stage- he had Haley.
And she didn’t know but obviously he’s with the BAU so when he got there everyone was like: OH MY GOD WHAT? It’s Agent Hotchner from the BAU!!
She wasn’t sure why he was there, but then he hugged her and handed her flowers and she smiled so wide that he finally relaxed, and they got so many photos together.
Nobody cheered as loudly as he did when they called out her name, and she finally felt relaxed enough to enjoy the day because of him.
It was when she seemed so proud of herself that Hotch stopped regretting everything that had happened during her time with the BAU because look at her: proud, happy, ready to take on the world like every other graduate.
And when somebody who didn’t know the truth said it was lovely that Ashley’s father loved her so much, he didn’t correct them. So neither did she.

You know, for such a poorly written, under-developed and inconsistent character, Hotch really could’ve gotten with any member of the team he had more than one interaction with and it would have somehow made sense because he literally has chemistry with all of them?
can the cm fandom stop acting like ashley seaver was the worst character ever like damn. the cm community needs to leave my girls alone ffs. also a nice reminder that ashley didn’t owe reid shit! stop acting like she did! please! anyways
currently rewatching season 6 of cm and seaver just joined. idk why everyone hates her so much (i’m heavily influenced on others opinions so i did too at one point) but like yes, she talks abt her dad a lot (that’s literally why they brought her) or she was ‘mean’ to spencer that one time (like other members on the team don’t do the same??) okay that’s all
You smiled as you watched Ashley pack her things up for the day. She needed a fresh go bag, having just gotten back from a pretty rough case. Her boss had given everyone the day off to recuperate and Ashley had immediately gone over to your place instead of hers. It made sense though, most of her non-work clothes were at your place and you had a washer and dryer in your apartment.
“You’re so pretty,” you told Ashley as she placed another folded shirt in her bag. Ashley looked up from what she was doing and smiled at you.
“Thank you. You’re pretty too,” Ashley said sweetly. She zipped her bag up and set it aside. You watched as she walked over to where you were laying on the bed and dropped down in front of you. She leaned forward a little and kissed your forehead. “I love you.”
“I really missed you Ash,” you told her as you rolled over onto your stomach. Ashley tucked a piece of hair behind your ear and sighed happily. “Will you lay down with me for a bit?”
“Yeah, you need to go to sleep. It’s way late,” Ashley said as she looked at her watch. She had gotten to your place at around 11:30 and you’d both been awake since then. Somehow, Ashley hadn’t yet reached the delerious state of being tired like you had.
“The sun’s almost out,” you said as you pointed towards the window.
“That’s a streetlight. How about you let me get a shower and then I’ll come back and we go to bed?” Ashley suggested. You nodded tiredly. It was hard, but you willed yourself to stay awake while Ashley was in the shower. You were barely there whenever she came back, dressed up in some old college sweats and one of her academy training shirts. “Come on, scooch.”
“Make me,” you mumbled. Ashley sighed, realizing that she really would have to physically move you if she wanted any room in the bed. She carefully moved you so that you weren’t splayed out all over the bed. You ended up grabbing onto her shirt, which was when it was decided that she was laying right up against you for the night. “Soft.”
“Goodnight.” Ashley gave you a quick peck on the lips. You just snuggled closer to her, which Ashley hadn’t thought was possible, and quickly fell asleep. Exhaustion caught up with Ashley and she passed out just as fast as you had.
