I can't totally blame him for breaking up with her, but I definitely cannot say she's doing wrong by just saying "No." She din't get a proper explanation as to why he was leaving her, only we did through his mind and eyes he saw himself and the relationship he was in. She thought that there were things they needed to talk about, but he wasn't ready yet so she din't push him, she waited until he himself would be ready to talk. But mostly din't think there was much bad in their relationship.

When he said they needed to talk she was happy because she thought he was going to tell her why he wasn't feeling well, and what was/is bothering him. But he was most likely too afraid or even had less trust in telling her the full reason why he was leaving her. She felt heartbroken, told him he wasn't leaving her, threatened (or maybe at least that's what it looks like in the Anger part) than felt upset with herself at the frightened sight he gave her, tried to apologize and convince him to stay but he left anyway.

I'll admit that their relationship thing (somehow I know they'll most likely end up together.) needs a lot of things that needs to be fixed in it, for example:
Trust - That is very important in EVERY relationship, what point is in that kind where you don't trust yourselves each other enough to say what bothers you, saddens you or frightens you both? Like in this one, trust clearly is lacking and that was the first point to their break up.

Differences between each other - everyone and everything is different, and we can't wait nor expect that someone will change just to make us happy now I'm not referring how they were both acting both him and her, I'm talking about their physical and emotional differences. She is the warm and hot sun that melted his heart but also can melt him to thin jelly. Yet he accepts her the way she is and loves her none the less. She is the happy, cute and heartwarming girlfriend most people have. And tries to understand people mostly those she loves, but also has her secrets she clearly hasn't revealed. Like the bad messenger, who was her former lover? And why did she leave him? Icarus is the shy and quiet type that likes to keep to himself. Has lot of bad mental disorders and bad personalities that he tends to hide from people even from her. He is a statue that can easily melt under her, and that was most likely bothering him. She loved/loves him the him without these problems. Maybe what he said that "She loved the other him." is like meaning she loves the fake version he created himself. And this brings us to another thing that needs to be fixed!

Tolerance: Is pretty much the same as the first part but slightly different. Some people don't easily get rid of their mental disorders, some have them for life! (Like me for example) but that's not the point. Icarus most likely won't be able to get rid of his disorders very quickly and fast as he hopes, but let's not forget the reason eh broke up with her. He left her in a bad way and elected a second chance pretty quickly which was pretty dumb, but i still have to tolerate the way he is. Not saying it's good but the person with the same problem like him can deal with these things with some help. And that also comes with tolerance but that's something that will maybe be shown in next chapters.

Secrecey: Everyone has their secrets and we can't except everything will be told us, but these two kept things from each other that din't need to be or better to say shouldn't be kept. Icarus should and try to explain to Sun the full and real reason he left her and apologized the way he broke up with her (or that he even broke up with her I don't know.) but she should also tell him a few things about herself to him as well, and tell him a few of her secrets that she sees fit to be told.

This reflects my last relationship quite accurately... He was going through a tough time and kept quiet about it, but at the same time took it out on me, at one point even broke up with me just to come back a few weeks later claiming it was "just to protect me from him". But he hadn't changed much, even if he claimed he did. He would still project everything he disliked about himself onto me and critizise me for every little flaw he saw in me (or rather himself). After he went on a trip with some friends and was away for a whole month, I eventually noticed how I felt much better without him and his constant critique. I broke up with him when he came back, even tho he said that he had changed compleatly, but I really doubted that.
I think that certain things just can't be repaired in a relationship, now matter how much you try to work on them. You can never measure how another person feels and you should never expect them to respond in the way you want them to. Some romantic clichés are just plain bullshit and I have to agree with Sun on this one! Just because someone admits to their flaws and says they are sorry, doesn't mean they won't hurt you again.

I can really relate to her decisions, you shouldn’t ever take back anyone who hurt you, if they did it once who says they won’t do it again??

My main problem with Icarus Is that Sun warned him that dating her would be a mistake, she told him that she would hurt him. Did she hurt him? Yes. Is that Ok? No. But I don't think that hurt was intentional (During the break up tho that was 100% on purpose). So she finally feels like she can be with someone who she loves and loves her back. And that person breaks up with her. The one guy she thought was different is the same as everybody else. Then he has the nerve to ask for her back? Wth???I don't think it could get any more selfish than that.

Added to that is the fact that he doesn't really acknowledge the pain their breakup caused her. It comes across like all he can see is himself in their relationship, like he's only sorry because he didn't like the results of his choice, not because of what he did 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 : ' )
