#though i would venture to say that what michael felt for ryan ran deeper#the lengths he was willing to go for him in s4 and s5 #all the way up until he left scranton really #more than prove it #even after he was able to admit to himself that ryan is selfish and a horrible friend #he never stopped believing in him and wanting him to succeed #he never stopped supporting him #or caring about his future #however you read it-platonic or romantic-the affection he felt for ryan #was a whole lot closer to love
