In this fanfic, we see Jason Todd as he tris to figure out who he really is.

Batman tried to turn him into a second Robin, to no avail.

The Joker then tried to turn him into a true bad guy.

And more importantly, he tries to make the friends he so desperately needs.

In this fanfic, the focus is more on Bruce Wayne, and his alter ego, Batman. 

Bruce Wayne is no stranger to taking in strays and struggling kids.

But somehow this time, he feels the need to be a real father figure for Tim Drake. 

This is because this Tim Drake was abandoned by his Batman in an alternate universe.

3. the bat’s nest

This fanfic is a crossover between the Batman and Justice League comics and movies.

It takes place in an alternate universe, and it is, therefore, a bit different that the original stories.

Batman has been a part of the Justice League for some time, but he still does not trust his fellow superheroes.

The rest of the League knows this about him and accepts it, because, as far as they know, Batman always works alone.

But then they find out about all the children he took under his wing, and the perception they have of Batman completely changes.

The story is only one chapter long, but it is filled with a lot of feelings and all of our favorite characters.

4. Latchkey

He is walking around town, trying to fend for himself, when Jason sees him.

When he tells Bruce Wayne about the boy with all this talent walking around, Bruce decides to take Tim under his wing.

People are quarantined, and Tim Drake is bored out of his mind because of this.

So to pass the time, Tim decides to start a TikTok account and just have some fun with it.

And even though the views are sky high, it also has consequences.

8. Flock

This story contains 100 different one-shots about Dick, Jason, Tim, and Damian.

A few of the other characters from several Batman media types also show up, but the main focus is on the four boys.

So when the version of Bruce without any finds this out, he realizes that children are exactly what he needs.

It is all he can think about, but he has no idea where to start.

So he looks up the kids from the other universes to find out how they are doing in this universe.

And soon, he comes up with an idea to create his own little Bat family.

This story is part 1 of the “Flightless Birds” series.

He also knows that his children wear capes in some of the universes and are out on the streets as superheroes.

But that is not what he wants for his children.

So he does everything he can to ensure that his universe isn’t one with the child vigilantes.

And, of course, his kids do not agree with this and do everything they can to change his mind.
