The Legend of Korra ended with our titular Avatar beginning the next step of her life hand in hand with her new girlfriend, Asami. We’ve gotten to see that story continue even with the show’s end, thanks to both fan works and Dark Horse’s great graphic novel series. But now we’re going to get a tiny little taste of what could’ve been if the show had continued.

Dark Horse has announced a special livestream broadcasting next week to promote Michael Dante DiMartino, Irene Koh, and Vivian Ng’s first graphic novel trilogy in the post-show series of Korra comics, Turf Wars. As well as a moderated Q&A with Janet Varney and Seychelle Gabriel, who played Korra and Asami on the show, respectively, Varney and Gabriel will also perform a live reading from the first chapter of Turf Wars, which picks up moments after the final episode of the series came to a close.

It’s very sweet, depicting that brief handhold. Sure, it’s not an animated re-enactment, but still: It’s the closest we’ll get to seeing Korra and Asami being blissfully romantic.

Dark Horse’s livestream will begin on its Twitch channel on April 7.
