Tropers / Franklin Shepard

Kind of a closet nerd; this troper enjoys comic books, retro video games, and geeky TV shows, but very few of his friends know this. However, the one thing that everyone knows about him is that he loves showtunes and musicals, and he knows more about them than you do.

At least, that used to be true. In the past few years, this troper has been much more open with his geeky pastimes. He no longer cares if you know he reads comic books, cause life's too short.

He lives in Manhattan with three other people in a small apartment, and loves it. It helps that all the people in the apartment are at least 35% as geeky as he is, and the one other guy is probably even more of a nerd.
