I like what you said about Snape knew James as the threat to their friendship, & that Lily saw Avery and Mulciber as the threat and I think your right about that.

But I donít think it is possible to say that either one was right in thinking their point was the right one. If Sev had given up his friendship with Avery and Mulciber but Lily had continued along the path she was on with James Ė I think it very likely that the friendship would not have survived. I also think the reverse is true had Lily changes things with James and Sev continued with his friendships with Avery and Mulciber I doubt the friendship would have survived.

Both were threats to the friendship and imo equally so, and both would have to have been addressed if the friendship was to flourish.
