Slade is commonly shipped with Robin (Slade/Robin, known as Sladin) and Raven (Slade/Raven). This is largely in part to the Apprentice Storyline which sees Slade take Robin as his apprentice and the Birthmark/Trigon storyline in which Slade works for Raven's Father Trigon. Slade/Robin has 806 works on Archive of Our Own as of November 2019 and Slade/Raven has 6 as of November 2019. Due to the villainous nature of Slade's character, a lot of the fanworks involving him do have darker themes, however, there is also a number of works which portray him as a figure which is very protective of his love interest. An example of this is https://archiveofourown.org/works/18633307.
He is commonly shipped with Oliver Queen (Slade/Oliver) and also Shado (Slade/Shado) and both of these characters as a trio (Slade/Oliver/Shado). As of November 2019, there are 252 works on Archive of Our Own under the Oliver Queen/Slade Wilson tag, 36 works under the Oliver Queen/Shado/Slade Wilson tag, and 46 under the Shado/Slade Wilson tag. Due to the mentor/mentee relationship between Slade and Oliver on Lian Yu fanworks often focus on a relationship starting on the Island and Slade makes it off the Island with Oliver or Slade still 'dying' but them re-uniting in Starling City. Examples of these are https://archiveofourown.org/works/685990/chapters/1259147 and https://archiveofourown.org/works/1291717/chapters/2678611.
