* In ''Lords and Ladies,'' Granny Weatherwax does point out that half-elves (or their descendents) tend to giggle a lot and burn easily in sunshine. Doesn't Christine giggle all the tiem?

* On the other hand, it's also true that the Ghost chose Christine over Agnes in the first place, on the grounds that "I can teach you to sing like her, but I cannot teach her to look like you" (but Christine hid under Agnes's bed when she heard the voice, and Agnes did her best Christine impression to get the lessons). The Ghost, unlike Walter, really is a bit of a git. On the ''third'' hand, if the "new" Walter is an amalgamation of his two personalities, it's possible he had both motivations at once.

* It could also be considered that Walter was something of a realist. He's right about Christine's looks compared to Agnes, and at least he has the decency to say it to her face, if not in so many words. Salzella, on the other hand, is friendly to Agnes' face and mocks her size behind her back incessantly. He could have been being CruelToBeKind and giving Agnes the push she needed to move on to a life where she'd be appreciated. Or, at least, not in the background all the time, with the credit for her work being given he to another. Indeed, he might even have noticed that the witches had followed Agnes all the way from Lancre and drawn his own conclusions, being a perpetual background figure.

* Possibly Plinge never realized that he coached Agnes instead of Christine, or that Agnes "ghosted" Christine's performances. In which case he's so excited at having found in Christine a beautiful body that he thinks has a beautiful voice, he doesn't care what happens to Agnes. (And having grown up in an opera house, he doesn't see anything special in a beautiful voice coming from an enormous body.) Which should make things...interesting the first time he tries to coach the real Christine.

* Or, as in real life, Plinge knew a female artist would suffer for an unattractive appearance, and wanted Agnes out of harm's way before the men of Ankh-Morpork could go to town with their opinions of her.
