Where in the text does it indicate that Lily chose James and Sirius over Snape? Canon shows why Lily breaks away from Snape, and it was because of Snape's own actions.

especially since he has been watching the whole Ron/Hermione drama-rama unfold over years and their reunion in DH. How many times did they break up and forgive each other?
Ron never called Hermione a racial slur and/or aligned himself with racists who hated people like her. That's the difference. If Snape's actions and choices are not taken into account, then of course that loses Lily's reasoning for her actions, making her look like she's being too mean and unreasonable. But I feel you'd have to deny canon in order to get to that point.
