<snip the "live with love or die" imprisonment idea for LV>
LV, in this disjointed form, cannot "possess" Harry or harm him
in any way but his sole existence is within the scar.
Well, he did possess Harry in the MOM.
Was it truly possession? When LV's memory/horcrux-soul-fragment possessed
Ginny, she had no memory of her actions, and he completely controlled her
body, even being able to work magic through her. At the Ministry, Harry
knew he was being inhabited by LV but the point is, he _knew_ it and had
the free will to be able to think, feel, and make choices, and the love
associated with the willingness to die - the choice he made - drove LV
It simply means that Harry is stronger than Ginny, at least when it
come to driving evil possessing wizards from within him. Not to
belittle Ginny, Harry had an advantage. He knew Voldy was evil, Ginny
considered Tom to be her friend. So, Harry's possession, if you want
to call it that, was too short to be successfull.
Ginny specifically told Harry (and us) that possession involves
not having any memory of the event. Considering how great a part
memory has played so far - Pensieves and Neville's bad memory and
Harry's infant memories slowly coming back and LV's diary holding
a memory - I think any mention of "memory" is likely to be significant.
Also, Ginny wasn't speaking from book knowledge like Hermione,
her evidence is from direct experience and I believe is more to be
trusted because of that.
