The sync fairies remind me from time to time, by a string of coincidences too suspicious to ignore, that Joan of Arc is still around and still important.
This is from my adult student's English magazine: a summary of an Arsène Lupin story ("La mort qui rôde," Englished as "Shadowed by Death") featuring a character named Jeanne Darcieux. From the standard English translation of the original:

One accident of this sort is allowable. . . . So are two . . . and even then! . . . But we have no right to suppose that the chapter of accidents, repeating the same act three times in such different and extraordinary circumstances, is a mere amusing coincidence. . . ."
