I have to admit, now that I'm getting the hang of the very very basics of photoshopping Rainbow Dash into screencaps... it's turning into a lot of fun.

I like how AJ isn't even trying to lie anymore.

Yeah, haven't caught any lies since she started rolling. Not sure if the rolling IS just fake, or what? Maybe she's rolled 'lie' on stuff I wouldn't notice, though?

Rereading Discord’s comment earlier... she is 100% not actually lying. She’s just reverse metagaming.

Well no one's rolling Sense Motive on her, so we don't know when she's lying and when she's not.

At a guess, AJ's messing with Twi by making her *think* she might be lying. This theory goes down the drain the first time she actually lies after a die roll, though.

I mean, she's not "revealing" the truth if she's agreeing with an obvious fact. At least that's how I'd spin it if I were her.

Speaking as someone who used to play a Pooka in Changeling, what AJ is doing is deeper than just lying/not lying. She's still deliberately obfuscating not only the truth, but her opinions on the truth.
The die roll? That's adding a random element. EVEN IF SHE ISN'T ACTUALLY ROLLING AGAINST ANYTHING. It's a layer of complete uncertainty, making her statements completely unreliable. And she's being careful enough when talking that they're not demonstrably true or false on their face.
Which is worse? Someone who lies all the time, or someone who only lies half the time? Or only ten percent of the time?
