7. The Best Things
This Batman fanfiction has a premise similar to one we have seen before, but this author approaches it differently.
In this story, we once again see Bruce Wayne taking in children who have nothing.
This time, he takes in a boy who lives next door who clearly has no one, as well as an assassin girl whose parents do not treat her well.
People make jokes about Bruce taking in stray children, but he doesn’t let it bother him.
He has the space and the resources to care for these needy children, so he continues to do so.

In this story, Bruce Wayne has too many children to care for, but he keeps taking them in.
The Justice League knows that he does not trust anyone and that he works alone, but that does not stop them from trying to help him.
They are the closest thing to friends and family that he has.
Whether or not he will accept their help is anyone’s guess.
This short story is only 5,000 words, but it is still one of the most popular.
