Harry P. runs out of money.

All I can remember is that harry finds out his trust fund is now empty due to overspending(?) and cant pay for hogwarts tuition. I think he also starts baking pies to make money.

I remember reading a few where he'd been fleeced by Dumbledore and his plots 'for the greater good', but not from overspending...

I think I remember one where he's starting a bakery or restaurant. I'm almost certain the money was [legally] stolen by his magical guardian giving it away however. Or they went anybody in possession of the Gringotts key is legally allowed to withdraw the gold, and since Harry never got his key back after third year, it's his fault.

I think I remember this, IIRC it was written as a parody of all those Independent!Harry fics that have him going on a huge Diagon Alley shopping spree.

Any idea what the names of the fics are?

I vaguely recall there being a short and not serious parody where that happened.

Why would he? Author´s statement is that its free. *excuse the snark please, i just find this astounding to come up so often despite WOG being given multiple times by now*

Variations on that seems to be the norm yes. There´s also the "over-realistic" view on goblin standards fics where they´ve emptied his vaults based on fees or interest rates on something. And then the ones where there never really was any fortune, the trustvault was it, and that came from selling everything off when the parents got killed.
There´s more variants for sure, but i don´t think i´ve read any where overspending takes his money, so hoping for someone to know it.

I'm sorry I can't remember anything more helpful. You might want to try searching on a forum dedicated to Harry Potter fanfiction rather than Sailor Moon & Ranma 1/2.

Here are some Yahoo groups that might be a better choice:

Flourish and Blots
This one is part of a pair, and is primarily for G & PG-13 searches. If in doubt, use the other one.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/flourish_and_blots/

Borgin and Burkes
This one is part of a pair, and allows the more mature rated stories (R & nc-17). The other group is if you want to avoid smut stories.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/borgin_and_burkes/


HPstoryfinders
Looking for the Harry/Draco novel? Or that Snape/Hermione story that made you cry? Or even that Weasley twins one that was really good? Just can't remember where to find it? Post on this list and ask, someone just might know where it is. Gen, het, and slash are allowed. They're all equal as far as anyone should be concerned.

(the next is NOT a duplicate, just almost the same name)

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HPfind-a-fic/
Remember that chaste little kiss that gave you sweet dreams for a week? Or the time Snape confiscated a HP/SS fanfic in class? Or how about that satisfying moment when Lucius finally bottomed? -- if you know it's out there, but you don't know where: HP find-a-fic. For all your fanfiction needs. This is the most efficient Harry Potter fic finder on the net! Help us maintain the excellent service by helping to promote the group!

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hp-recs/


P.S. I had this as a semi-canned response for situations like this cropping up on non-HP forums, but it looks like I need to update the information to include the Neo links before they stop working. They should still work however.
