Mithen single-handedly brought me into the DCU fandom in July 2008, and Te's keeping me there; I love every minute of it. I don't have a ton of *different* recs; what I have are ways to find other rec pages, or sift through a particular author. Smallville fics and authors are mixed in here too - that sometimes-wacky show is, after all, part of the same universe.

AUTHORS
~
Mithen; she favors the Superman/Batman and Clark/Bruce pairings (yes, they can be different).
~
Glossing 
~
Pervyficgirl 
~
Zee 
~Try 
Shalott's stuff in general, but in specific, read: the Reconciliable Differences universe (Conner/Kon finds out who both his parents are, or at least that they both care about him, and matchmakes); Moving On, in which Lex takes over the universe and the 'verse enjoys it; Ulterior Motives, in which Superman and Lex Luthor get over themselves and have a truce.
~
Lady Ra writes some schmoopy Clark/Lex fics. I admit, I do like it when there are alien complications to having an affair. 
~
Te. I'm too vanilla to read all of her stuff, but let me list off some favorites; regrettably, Te does not believe in writing summaries for the idle fic-browser. 
   Listed Under Batman
   1) the Intimates series: Tim/Oracle, Tim/Jason and possibly others. This series is a cyberpunky AU, born from the Timfinity Challenge ("What if Tim had done X instead of join Batman?") with Oracle using Tim Drake as her avatar.
   2) the Form couplet: Tim/Dick. These two stories, from first Tim and then Dick's POV, cover a scenario in which Jason survives DitF but is crippled, and Batman retires to take care of him. 
   3) the Everything Spring series: Tim/Jason. Here, Tim is caught in his spying by Jason before DitF would've occurred. 
   4) Counter Shading: Tim didn't need to be taught subterfuge by Batman. A different reason why the Joker failed to break him.
   5) Something That Will Not Let Go: Batman needs a Robin, but how can he justify breaking in a child? A future, with Tim and Cass working together with others to create a Robin.
   6) All the Things of the World, Tim/Jason. Another Timfinity-esque fic. Here, rather than become Oracle's avatar, Tim tells her that Gotham "needs a Batgirl". Thus we get a crossdressing Tim, gender identity confusion, and a Jason who survives because of his crush on the new Batgirl. EDIT: This became a series, and one that goes a different direction than I thought implied in the first story. I wasn't terribly interested in the rest. Now, the story can be found under the series "The Young and the Battish".
   Listed Under Teen Titans
   7) Dangerous to Reason: Tim/Bart. Kid Flash uses psychology on Tim - and it works. Wire Cage Monkeys! Sex is easier than hugs! 
   8) Things You Get Used To: Tim/nearly every Teen Titan, focusing on Tim/Bart/Kon. Sex pollen --> sex --> embarrassment, trauma and possibly a new relationship. 
   Listed Under Young Justice
   9) A Clarification of Range: Tim/Kon. Tim's good at the disguise thing... *really* good. Kon catches on after, oh, the 5th or 6th one night stand.
   Listed Under Mixed Universe
   10) the Black Sky series: Tim/Kon, Kon/Batman. How life goes on after one of the Teen Titans dies.
   11) the The Drowners series: Tim/Jason, Jason/Bruce, Tim & Jason/Steph, Tim/Bernard. Jason died, but he's not gone; Tim lives, but he's lonely. What I thought would be a ghost-and-Mrs.-Muir scenario, with added possession, turned a lot weirder.
   12) go into the Good Bits index, for Waiting For You: Tim/Dick. Timestream troubles --> Dick and Tim being each other's first, and both waiting for the other since approximately the same calendar year.
   13) the World Enough series: Tim/Dick, Tim/Bruce, Tim/Steph, Tim/Kon, Tim/Bart, Tim <---> Cassie, Tim/Roy, Tim/Connor [I think], Tim/Bernard, Tim/Jason, Tim/Barbara and possibly more. Tim gets dosed with a fearlessness chemical, and since he'd been afraid of relationships... well.
   14) When I Have Lost My Way: Tim <---> Kon, Tim <---> Steph, Tim/Bernard. Tim can't stand being retired because of his father & stepmother. Luckily, he knows how to rewrite his memory. 
   15) Stop This Day And Night With Me: Tim/Connor Hawke. Connor tries to find his friend after Tim retires. Bonus points for the hotrod-driving lawyer OFC.
