What's This? VII is subtitled, "I am Mine" a reference to the response poem pinned by Maj Ragain, entitled Leda's Voice, Under Sky, Over Water.
"His wings, spread across the sky,
eclipse the sun beneath which
all things are his domain.
I was mine. Now, I am his."
I imagine, in this prequel, Leda knowing herself.
