Reading Order For the Wonderverse · 5:06am Feb 12th, 2017

So, I've been reading the Head in the Clouds trilogy by Calm Wind, (which I would highly recommend), recently and discovered many fanworks. Now, there are other reading lists out there, but they seem to be incomplete, or not including the original stories. Therefore, I have decided to make one myself. Or, at least, as close as I can get. Be warned, there are times when 5+ fics happen at the same time but needed to be spaced out within the list.

Few key things:
"-" means read afterward.
"*" means happens during something.
If a work happens during a work that happens during the original, the "*" for that one will be farther to the right.
"[" means AU to the canon stories.
I will specify if it is by the original author, or if it is a fanwork.
