love these two.
(Okay, her dynamic with Babs is not actually motherly at all, and in fact if I were into that kind of thing I’d probably say they were highly slashable, but whatever, Babs is still a Batkid so she still gets included.)
I love, love, love seeing Selina interact with the non-Bruce members of the Batfamily, because some of those dynamics are just so unexpected and so awesome. I don’t even know which of these scenes is my favorite: her being adorable with Steph, or Jason telling her she’s “got herself a date”, or her calling Dick out on the way he thinks exactly (seriously, she is so spot-on), or the fact that she takes one look at Damian in all his bratty glory and her only comment is “Cute kid”.
Seriously. “Cute kid.”
Akgkdfvktyh Selina, you need to marry Bruce RIGHT NOW and raise these kids because you are perfect and I need you to interact with them ALL THE TIME.
And then there’s her kissing Tim on the cheek, and his facial expression, which is utterly hilarious and perfect and basically I love every one of these scenes, okay.
(Except the one with Cass, which is actually in rather poor humor, IMO, but it’s seriously hard to find scenes of them interacting. More, better SelinaxCass interaction, plz?)

aw haha he looks so earnest and in loooove
This remains one of my very favorite issues ever. Just. UGH. How many women in this world can put that lovestruck little-boy expression on Bruce’s face?
And what kills me is that he means it. Bruce Wayne is not the kind of man who throws around affectionate platitudes that he doesn’t mean. He’s not the kind of man who throws around affectionate platitudes period, 99% of the time. So if he says he’d do anything for you, he freaking means it.
This story just has so much heart, but it’s 100% in-character, and that’s what I love. Such a fantastic issue, all-around. It really shows why Bruce and Selina are my OTP.
I really need to read more stories with Bruce and Selina.
Cackling at Tim just dropping down from the ceiling.
Steph meets Selina.
