Alternatively, you can read grouped by theme/character connections (some overlap):

Old History arc (on the long, reaching fingers of the past)
Little Lark, Boats Against the Current, As the Crow Flies, The Tale of Hartmut and Bramimond, Carrion Skies
Birds arc (on women)
Little Lark, As the Crow Flies, The Deception of the Thrush, White Storks at Dawn, Nightingale, Carrion Skies (the only one without an explicit bird title, lol)
Faith arc (on doubt and the struggle to reconcile belief and reality)
As the Crow Flies, Sunlight on a Broken Column, White Storks at Dawn
Gray Men arc (on those who toe the line between shadow and light)
(possible Heath/Legault, i.e. "Chiaroscuro"), What the Thunder Said, The Gray Men, Sunlight on a Broken Column, White Storks at Dawn
Ostian (Lycian) arc (on Hector/Florina and Oswin/Serra and their spies, briefly touching on other Lycians)
Falling, The Night Before, "Hector's Beard", What the Thunder Said, Boats Against the Current, (possible Uther), No Time for the Dead
Etrurian arc (on Percival/Cecilia/Mildain, Priscilla, Erk, and the people around them)
The Deception of the Thrush, Sand and Moonlight (with slight tie-ins to Nightingale and the possible Saul/Dorothy), Midnight, Star Dust
Sacaen arc (on Kent, Lyn, and Rath, and related individuals)
Little Lark, Wherever I May Find Her, (possible Kent/Lyn in Bulgar), Those Left Behind, Days of Waiting
Ilian arc (on the pegasus knights of Ilia)
A Thousand Snows, Nightingale, (possible Dieck/Thany, i.e. "Her Wings")
Bernese arc (on the proud men and women of Bern)
(possible Heath/Legault), The Tale of Hartmut and Bramimond, Carrion Skies
Aftermath arc (on what happens beyond war's end)
Carrion Skies, Upon the Shoulders of the Dead, (possible Dieck/Thany), (possible Saul/Dorothy), Legacy
Legacy arc (on the legacies we leave behind)
Invincible, Legacy




At the Still Point of the Turning World is standalone and serves as a prologue to the entire series. Upon the Shoulders of the Dead ties up pretty much all the arcs except for the Legacy and Aftermath arcs -- the fic "Legacy" serves specifically as an epilogue much in the way "Still Point" serves as a prologue.

info to be edited elsewhere eventually:

This pretty much covers the basic outline of everything I want to "say" about the Elibe universe, though as you notice there are still extra ideas that pop up now and then that may be inserted. (I may or may not decide to ever explain my Mark. Or say something about Harken/Isadora and Lowen/Rebecca/Wil, frex. Or other characters I've been silent about, though quite a few of those will get focused on in Shoulders of the Dead. Except for Canas, as trimurti_tuner has him pretty well-covered.)

(Note on timing: I'm counting the start of FE7 from the beginning of Lyn's story, and the end of FE7 about a year after the start of Eliwood/Hector's story. See the timeline for clarification.)
