** Chapter 2 of ''Ghosts of the Past'' features Harry getting into two of these with Voldemort. The first is merely written as a psychic duel, which Harry has an early edge in due to raw power, until Voldemort counters with much more skill, and his willingness to use Harry's friends as leverage. Later, Harry enters the MentalWorld Voldemort is controlling his PeoplePuppets from, and [[IAmNotLeftHanded stops holding back]], forcing Voldemort to retreat.
