Fic cliches

Have you ever read post-OotP independent!Harry fics? You know, the ones that generally have manipulative!Dumbledore, Sirius's will, helpful goblins, and Harry somehow gaining a ridiculous amount of political and magical knowledge in the space of a few months?

I love those fics. I know they're horribly cliched, oftentimes badly written, and have big enough plot holes to drive a tank through, but I adore them. (As long as they don't have traitor!Hermione. That pisses me off--especially since right after OotP, she's the most loyal of Harry's friends.)

And I like the shopping scenes that inevitably ensue after Harry hits Gringotts and discovers he has a metric asston of gold. Most people that profess an opinion hate those scenes, but I love them. I don't know why; perhaps I just enjoy being contrary.
