I don't know if they count as coincidence, strictly speaking. But I feel like sharing them anyway
1. Last semester there was a girl in my class called Angie. I couldn't help laughing whenever my teacher called her name in class. Just imagine your teacher asks Enjolras to answer questions by calling his nickname
2. Also last semester the 2012 movie was made the required material by a course. Thanks to that, all of my friends in that course suddenly started watching Les Miz as an assignment. I had a lot of fun reading their posts about the film and for the first time ever since I became a mizzie, I felt understood
But it was a pity that I failed to further introduce anyone into musical theater.
*EDIT (Feb. 05, 2016)* This has just happened to me and I'm trying so hard not to laugh while writing...
So, I have a friend who is a crazy fan of Japanese anime, a field I've never stepped into. The other day he posted several pictures on the Internet and asked 'could anyone please tell me whether the blurred poster at the corner is the portrait of Cosette?' You will never know how shocked I was upon seeing this -- I had absolutely no idea why he was suddenly asking that question since he had no knowledge of Les Mis at all! So I asked him in disbelief 'well, you know Cosette?' and he replied in even greater disbelief 'wait what? YOU know Cosette?'
It took me so long to finally figure out that the picture he was referring to was not 'the portrait of Cosette', but the poster of a Japanese anime...the title of which is exactly 'THE PORTRAIT OF COSETTE'!
