Review:missclaire17 says:
i dont like how jo refers to james as the one he's now and "her james". i cant see any difference between that and how james thought of jo before al told him he should stop seeing jo as two different people.

but im glad she knows that everything is her fault.
i feel bad for her but i dont think she should think of this as a battle.
to see who was on her side, who wasn't
because you cant put that sort of thing into words and divide everyone up because theres ALEX.
they all want to see him, get acquainted with him, have him included in their family.
which means they'd have to accept jo back.
jo may have been a strong part of their family before, but there's james.
for the people who've been around him for the last 7+years and the people who share his blood, thats not going to be easy.
i dont think jo should be unconsciously asking them to all choose a side because its complicated and not easy like that.
of course there are people like molly weasley I who clearly does not like jo.
but i mean, thats mrs. weasley. for the others who might not hate jo that much, but does not exactly like her either, it's harsh and rude and ridiculous.

if i were her, i dont think i can bare to divide up that family, all because of me.
have them choose sides? and potentially choose a side against their own flesh and blood?
i'd rather shoot myself first than do that to a family

Author's Response: She thinks of "My" James and "New" James much the same way he thinks of her as "old" and "new" Jo. If you pay attention, they actually have a lot in common with the way they are handling that.

She doesn't think of it as a battle, not really. In Jo's mind, she expects everyone to act like Mrs. Weasley even if they don't think that way. After all, they are HIS family.

But once she realizes that some are not taking that stance, she thinks that there's some hope that the family that was as close as her own, didn't ALL hate her.

It does hurt her that she is drawing a line between them, but that's not the way Jo thinks. She thinks in terms of what can and can't be done.

It's not that she's trying to split the family apart, it's that she sees that some division is inevitable given the circumstances. She does try to keep it as minimal as possible. That's why she doesn't blame those that do hate her.

I don't think the Weasly family as a whole is a lot more forgiving than you think. I mean, after all that with Percy they just accepted him back like it was nothing.
