In hindsight, some of the pre-series Korra shipping is funny given how LOK ended

Even before LOK first aired, a lot of people shipped Korra with Yue.

In the movie that shall not be named, Yue was played by Seychelle Gabriel…

…who would later voice Asami in The Legend of Korra…

…and ended up with with Korra.

So, in a very meta sort of way, Korra still ended up with Princess Yue (or, at least, two characters played by Janet Varney and Seychelle Gabriel did).

I honestly believe that Asami’s confession to Korra in the book 3 finale is THE most beautiful love confession I’ve ever seen and will see. She understands Korra is in no place to reciprocate her feelings and that she shouldn’t be weighted down with the idea of being in a relationship during her recovery. And she doesn’t want to push her own emotions and feelings on her so instead of making a traditional love confession she makes one that is one of a kind and even more beautiful she says “I want you to know that I’m here for you, if you ever want to talk or anything”. That no matter what Asami will be there for Korra whether it be standing by her side supporting her through anything and everything or as something more.
