DCU: Love in the Dairy Aisle (or, Why Batman Doesn't Do Fights) by FabulaRasa
Summary: Bruce and Clark do a little grocery shopping together, which goes about as well as you might expect.
Reccer's Notes: Despite the title and summary, this is not crackfic -- it's probably the most I've ever been emotionally devastated in under 5000 words. FabulaRasa has a ton of excellent longfic in the DCU fandom (and I may well end up reccing some of them later) but this story is the one that sticks out the most in my mind, because it is so pointedly focused on the class conflict inherent in a relationship between Bruce Wayne, billionaire, and literally anyone else (but in this case, Clark Kent, farmboy journalist). And the learning curve on "how to function in a relationship" can be pretty steep for everyone's favorite Poor Little Rich Boy! (I feel like I am not properly selling this fic, to be honest. It has a very hopeful and satisfying ending and the catharsis it provides is truly on point, is what I'm trying to say. BRUCE ♥♥♥)

DCU: And a trust between us
Summary: author's summary: "Bruce is Bruce no matter *what* he is. So Clark doesn't really know what's going on, and that's kind of okay."
Reccer's Notes: I love this "turned into dragons" fic and all the very different dragons that have been invented for each member of the batfamily. Of course it also involves Clark supporting Bruce through a difficult time and that's always lovely. In fact I loved it so much I did fanart for it.

DC Comics: Anima by Antiquity
Summary: With his soul mark fluttering across his back, Dick can't wait to meet his soulmate. To some of his friends a bat might be strange - and it's not a vampire bat, thank you very much - but to him, it's perfect. And an excellent barometer for when there's trouble on the horizon.
Reccer's Notes: A very lovely and cute fic for a pairing that's usually dark and/or angst-heavy. AU where Haly's Circus comes to Gotham when Dick is nineteen. This fic also kind of blends soulmarks with daemons, which was pretty neat :3 (First post yay!)

Batman vs Superman: Tell all the truth (but tell it slant), by susiecarter
Summary: It takes a while for Batman and Superman to work things out, once Clark comes back from the dead. Pretending to date each other in order to explain why Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are in the same place so often? Doesn't help as much as you might think.

Reccer's Notes: This is a post-BvsS fic with strong characterization, delightful fake dating and UST... and of course the required mutual pining that goes with it.
I am often a bit frustrated with this tropes because past a certain point the mutual pining can be seen from space and the characters have no excuse to keep pretending it's one sided and doing nothing about it... Susiecarter sidestepped this failing neatly: the fake dating makes sense, and the relationship evolves at the right pace.

MCU/Avengers: Smashed by qwanderer
Summary: Bruce Banner hasn't left this tower since the Incident. It's really quite generous of Ross to continue to let him live here, after how disastrously wrong the experiments went - here, where he can maybe avoid hurting anyone else ever again.

Then some guy with a bow shows up.
Reccer's Notes: This is a really fun Avengers/Tangled mashup, with Bruce as the princess who doesn't even realise that he needs to be saved. Sassy chameleon Tony Stark may be my favourite fanfic animal familiar.

DCU Comics: Notation by mithen
Summary: His first day on the Justice League, Roy Harper notices Batman has some peculiar note-taking habits. Investigations follow.
Reccer's Notes: The story has a clever use of hover text to help us understand the full meaning, although it's easy enough to work out from context the gist of what's being said. It's hilariously fun to read.

DCU: Interview with a Batman by mithen
Summary: Batman offers Clark Kent a deal--an interview with him, in exchange for information about Superman.
Reccer's Notes: Of course the DCU is the OG of identity porn, and the pairing of the Daily Planet reporter and the world's greatest detective gives the clue finding aspect that extra spicy twist. This fic has fun characterisation and just the right amount of suspense, as we wait for Clark and Bruce to spot that which is right underneath their noses. And the kissing, of course.
This time when he moved forward, Clark's step away brought his back up against the brick wall of the stairwell. Batman's face was intent and predatory, and Clark felt a frisson of alarm go through him. Had he figured it out? "I--that is--"

"You meet him up here, don't you?"

DC comics: Just a Formality by FabulaRasa
Summary: Bruce and Clark get married, for reasons. And then they fall in love. Nope, it's not Victorian time travel! I am straight up about this.
Reccer's Notes: A compelling approach to the friendship, practicality, and stoic pining involved in any Batman/Superman first-time fic, one that I had never actually seen before. Pulls the reader through the gamut of the newylyweds' emotions, from frustration to release, without wasting a word.
And that was it, actually.

Bruce never referred to the fact of their marriage at all, that day or any other. It was a non-event, for him. Which was an accurate perception, because it had been both a non-marriage, and non-eventful. And because it was meaningless. A legal formality, like Bruce had said. It hadn't meant a thing.

Summary: Bruce had no idea how an asexual ended up with a huge family but somehow over the years he'd gathered one that worked relatively well given how flawed they all were.
