Why is he melting when he is close to her?

All the people saying: "he deserved it." Wooooowww... I never thought he did, when I read this I was a little disheartened by the fact that Sun could be so selfish. Was his word choice poor? Yeah, really, really poor, but, that doesn't mean she gets off the hook lightly either. Observe the comics before this, namely where it all started with him leaving her: '5 Stages of Grief'. In the first panel, Sun is holding a flaming hand beneath his wings, as if trying to handicap him so he really can't leave her. This is true in most relationships, don't burn the bridge, burn them.

The next is 'The Great Escape', where, yeah, we see the sobbing face of Sun and want to feel sorry for her. However, look at what she's done to Icarus as he's fleeing, this is not a healthy coping mechanism. She's hurting him even as he's leaving, he's quiet literally a 'Post-breakup runaway'.

The 'Lament of Icarus' reveals that this problem is not so black and white. Icarus got with Sun, hoping she could fix him, maybe help him out of this funk he was in. Clearly, by the love they shared, she did, but she was also scalding him, breaking him down worse than before. Sun was equally to blame because, guess what? She saw the problem too, but said nothing about it. She. Said. Nothing. She could have asked, they could have broken through this wall, but she chose to do nothing. She remained silent, continuing to pretend to be asleep. We could say she evaded it because she didn't know how to handle it, but that's the coward's way out, not confronting a problem, choosing to remain ignorant? That's just as bad, if not worse than bringing about a confrontation.

Then 'Let Me Out' is anther classic example - Sun is stealing Icarus' heart while he sleeps. She's taking what doesn't belong to her and will only end up damaging him more with the backup of her little Fennec pals who we think are cute, but seem to sew discord between the two. They could be minions of Sun, but they could also reflect her personal feelings. Those little masks they wear? They're not wearing them for show. They're helping her steal his heart, even after they've broken up. And not to mention, at the very BEGINNING of all this madness, 'Apologies in Advance', which illustrated Sun telling Icarus: "Because... Things will go bad... And I'll hurt you." Uh... excuse me? And this is after he tells her he loves her, and she tells him NOT to say it.

'Bad News' is a cornerstone, foretelling that, more than likely, Sun has been in a relationship before. The arrow in question belongs to Sagittarius, who you can look up facts about anywhere, but the ruling planet is Jupiter, and their element of course - fire. Clearly, there is more stuff in Sun's past then she's willing to let on. This has also effected her relationship with Icarus, causing her to be withdrawn, even going so far as to say she'd hurt him beforehand, as if she's done it before to someone.

If so and it wasn't working out, it seems more than likely clear that Sun left the other guy, causing him severe pain. Enough to shoot an arrow through the sky that looks like a falling star... This leaves the idea: "so, it's okay for you to leave someone with no strings attached, but when someone does the same to you, you rage out and cause them pain even in the embers of your relationship?" Regardless, Sun is also selfish. The lack of communication on both sides has lead to this, but if you think Sun is devoid and innocent of all crimes, you better take another good, clear look at the comics we've received so far. They're both to blame, no one should be free of the guild on either side.

I don't think that Icarus was necessarily being "selfish" by leaving her, honestly. But this "return"? I honestly couldn't view him as being any more selfish.

"Living without you hurts me twice as much."

Literally not a word about how he's sorry for hurting her, or asking about what she feels. "I'm sorry for leaving you" is directly connected to how leaving her hurt him, rather than for shredding her heart to bits. His "speech" is pretty much entirely about him. 

I want this couple to have a happy ending too, but he's gotta do some growing up first.

I might of commented on this before ( who knows lol ) but like,,, , honestly the amount of comments that are like "he deserved that xD" are honestly. kinda sad? 
like,, Icarus was only as 'mean' as he had to be. He didnt dump her in a heartless way. he was LEGITIMATELY DYING and it forced him to break up with her. He clearly didnt want to break up with her but he had to for his own saftey !!! 
Ofc im not blaming sun either!! so many people i feel are misinterpreting this comic, and that this is a story about how relationships can be unhealthy with both parties still being good people and still being in love with eachother. Honestly this is something I have been through personally, having to break off with someone because they were hurting me despite them not meaning to ( and im aware of it and have never blamed them for it ) .
I mean, this is a beautiful comic, the way its drawn and everything holy cow! im excited to see where it goes but all the,,, comments on this are kind of sad to me especially because I sympathize with Icarus. I think both of these characters are wonderful and i hope everytihng turns out ok for them in the end : ' )

"I'm erasing myself from the narrative.
Let future historians wonder how Eliza reacted when you broke her heart.
I'm watching it....burn....burn
The world has no right to my heart, the world has no 0lace in our bed, they don't get to know what I said.
I'm burning the memories, burning the letters, that might have redeemed you.
You forfeit all right to my heart, you forfeit the place in out bed, you'll sleep on your office instead.
With only the memories of when you were mine.
I hope that you.......burn."

Idk, this part of the song just popped in my head when I saw the title of this x-D
It's true though, he did deserve that after what he did to her. There's no such thing as just "starting over"

I don't think he deserved that i mean it's true he dumped her but he was hurting he has no wings anymore they melted off and in all honesty he told her about he's inner demons but i didn't see her trying to help him, and if she doesn't want to get back together it's okay it's her choice (I'm just trying to say they were both hurt and they both really didn't look for each other and ended up hurt because of that) just my opinion though

Both, you'd... really just have to know him. He had some really bad issues, I tried to help as best I could but it just hurt me instead. After all that, this basically happened (this comic strip specifically). The whole situation was just not fun. 😅
