Internet Legend Tami Smithers
Caught by campus police on a sorority streaking dare her first week away at college -- brought in to the Dean -- the college is very strict about such things and the penalty is explusion -- she impulsively cooks up the excuse that nudity is her “religion” -- the Dean consults with the college lawyer -- doesn’t want to risk a lawsuit for religious discrimination -- so the Dean lets her go -- but says adherence to her “religion” will be strictly monitored --
How should you read about this remarkable young woman?
“The Unintentional Nudist” saga (the original series): takes Tami from Thanksgiving break of her freshman year to Fall semester of her sophomore year. Parts III through XIII (the conclusion) are posted here.
“Tami Saves Mei-lin” and “Tami, the Naked Freshman” fit somewhere between V and VII.
“Tami Beethoven” looks in on Tami during her senior year.
“Interview with the Professor” has her at age 33, a college professor.
“The Other Side of the Gym” takes her up in middle age and provides closure, at least chronologically.

The Tami Smithers universe is not copyrighted and anyone can contribute, as a number of others already have. The character and initial “predicament” were introduced to the world in 1999 by TrackJim. Note the other works (still searchable on the web) by Jack Straw, Mr. Flip, and (especially) katie (a/k/a Katie Lynch, katie slave), along with some others who escape my mind at the moment.
If I can make rules they are:
1. Of course, no incest, underage sex, homophobia or racial stereotyping.
2. Full nudity (no shoes either). Tami is the only one naked.
3. Respect the integrity of this much-loved character. Make sure the reader is always on her side.
