wtf that doesn't make sense. just because you haven't read them doesn't mean they're not canon. at least ATWQ is part of an unfolding universe, despite both it and ASoUE being able to be enjoyed independently of each other. i guess some weirdo could argue they're retconned canon? but you could argue that about every subsequent book in a series, so not really.
Beatrice Letters and TUA (as well as FU:13SI) are supplementary materials to the main series, so it's more understandable, if they're not counted as canon i think.
EDIT: I'll concede that you specified "headcanon", though; a concept that allows for anything to the point of it being arbitrary. So fire away, i guess, I don't mean to spoil your fun

Well... anything written by Lemony Snicket is canon. And in some cases that's self-contradictory, but in those cases I believe that it's canon that Lemony, in-universe, wrote self-contradictorily trying to convey the story. The only things I consider part of my 'headcanon' are theories that weren't specified in the official works, yet don't contradict them; such as Isadora being transgender, for instance. I only really feel like adopting something into my headcanon if I feel it makes sense and adds something to the world, so I don't personally have a lot of headcanons. I guess it's a headcanon for me that Violet and Quigley kissed halfway up Mount Fraught, but that's so heavily implied that it feels more like a technicality.
The actual question, which books are in my headcanon, doesn't really make sense to me. Everything by Snicket is canon, no 'head' required, and no other books are in my headcanon for the Averse.
You could argue, if you wanted to, about whether 29 Myths was canon.
Speaking of which: there was a theory proposed a while ago that The Lump of Coal, The Latke... etc. were works of fiction that Lemony Snicket (the character) had written. In which case, might 29 Myths be a work of fiction that Lemony has written, inspired by his experiences in Stain'd?

As to me… the original 13 books and Beatrice Letters are the "core" which I would not contradict in a fanfiction. Overall I also accept the rest (UA and TDD and all), but if it worked in the fanfiction's interest to ignore some part or other of these appendixes, I would.

I think everything that comes from Daniel Handler's mind is canonical when he writes as Lemony Snicket. But not necessarily everything he wrote actually happened in that universe. After all, Daniel Handler had to play multiple characters when he wrote T.U.A. And not all of those characters are reliable.
