"Consequences… Give a person a situation with no consequences and you’ll see the real them… Every time."


Twilight is showing Celestia her new invention – an advanced lie detector. Without her knowledge, Luna and James asked her friends to join the presentation. But that shouldn't be a problem. After all, the mane six has nothing to hide! … right?

This sounds very interesting.

I find this much better than the interview, and I like that you used more truth than lies to make jokes.

Great job! Have some good luck.

And remember people: "Everybody lies!"

That's a lie!

Cadance, Shining, RUN!!

Actually, stay. We want to hear about your lies:rainbowlaugh:

Good story! I had some good laughs!

This story was not funny.


Dang it.

“Hmm...” Pinkie tapped her chin. “Apple Bloom and I summoned the Gypsy demon of the fallen baker once, but… I think that’s legal?”

okay if that is not a ref to the parody "Friendship is Witchcraft" l don't know what is....

you are awesome dude, had VERY good laugh from this

Oh yeah, well...This sentence is false!

Poor Dashie.
Poor Rarity, as well; taxes are nasty business.

I don't think fluttershy would grow pot. I think it would be an underground fight club, if anything.

This feels like a side story to something larger.

Damn it Huk! You HAVE to do a Follow up! This is just too good!

Now I need more antics with this thing. Being unable to lie is super funny.

Damn is this like Konosuba, Cause i really want to see more.

I think the pot is actually Tree Hugger's and Flutershy is just renting her basement to her

Cadence and Shining better get outta there, because I don't think their marriage will survive that thing.

Hey Cadence, Is flurry heart actually Shining's. *waits to see the detector's reaction*

Reminds me of the Moe bit from the Simpsons. Funniest lie detector skit I’ve ever seen.

And remember people: "Everybody lies!" :trollestia:

Was...was that a house reference?!

this concept has been done before, and alot beter i might add

look up 'the numbers don't lie'

also who was the idiot who decided the word for saying something false and the alternate word for laying down should be the same thing....*travels back in time to have some words with one mr. webster*

I've got a good laugh out of this, thanks for the read. I like how it's...mostly "clean" too. An unfortunate side effect of browsing this site is clop enters a majority of "Sex" tagged stories.
I do wanna see more on this, but I do believe you left it off at a good spot.However, I would not reject reading more from this :twilightsmile:

That's why I liked that a while back they added a separate "porn" tag. Old stories probably won't have it unless the author went back and added it, but it's great for newer stories.

I can only imagine what they're going to ask Cadence and Shining.

heh, what i find interesting is that every word i speak is true, even the falsehoods...ESPECIALLY the falsehoods...

Absolute bliss from the very beginning all the way to the end! Structured beautifully, the hook is phenominal, goodness it's got it all! I hope you don't mind, but I simply HAD to make a lil' reading on this wonderous story of yours!

Well, let me know what you think after you read it :twilightsmile:


Ironically this story was the first draft of what later became 'The Great And Powerful Job Interview,' but at the time, I didn't find it funny and couldn't figure out the ending, so it was 'marinating' on my drive for almost half a year.

And it wasn't the first time either. The same thing happened with 'Dashing to Dirty Conclusions' - for almost a year, I wasn't sure whether to post it or not, thinking nobody will like it.

Talk about not understanding what people like... :twilightblush:


Well, I'm with my sarcastic guru on this one:


But feel free to challenge it :raritywink:


... beat me to it by 17 hours :duck:


Liar! ... glad you enjoyed it :twilightsmile:


YES! It was inspired by "Friendship is Witchcraft" - glad someone got the reference. Also glad you enjoyed it :twilightsmile:.


Maybe Dash is just is the 'sex after marriage only' kind of mare :rainbowdetermined2:


Or maybe both...

"Come on into Fluttershy's animal fighting club. Free weed for all betting patrons!"

Now that's a club I would like to visit :trollestia:


Yeah, seen that. Something tells me that the original 'Lie Detector' short on YT was inspired by that Simsons' episode :ajsmug:



... yes :trollestia:


I realize this concept has been done probably 100+ times, and that there are probably better stories out there (I have the one you mentioned in my 'read it later' queue). But you know... if everyone was comparing their stories to others, nothing new would get published.

Sorry, you didn't enjoy it, but you can't please everyone... :unsuresweetie:


Agreed. Before the tag, I was pretty wary of using stronger innuendos and stuff requiring 'sex' tag, because most 'sex' stories were just clop. Thankfully, it's much easier now.


... your name wouldn't be Elim Garak, would it :trixieshiftright:?


Whoa, I'm honored :twilightsheepish:


Thanks for the kind words, however, to make things clear... No, this isn't a part of anything larger - just a one-shot. As for any sequel... maybe, but I cannot promise anything.

Sorry, but I'm a very inconsistent writer... :ajsleepy:


I imagine it would start with the question about Flurry Heart and would go downhill from there. I imagine we would find out that:

  1. Cadance is a flaming dyke - having Shining only as a coverup
  2. Flurry is Cadance and Luna's daughter (those futa spells work wonders... :moustache:) - explains how she's an alicorn
  3. Shining found out about him being only a cover-up, and Flurry not being his daughter but that';s OK, because Cadance was also cover-up for him being gay. In reality, he's secretly sleeping with Blueblood :pinkiecrazy:
  4. and... ... Nope, that's it, the well of crazy ideas is dry for now :unsuresweetie:

... OK I'm going to leave the room now...

Mate, how could l not like it?... You are a hell of great writer, an EXPERT in making us crap ourselves with laughter (or was that just me?) and at kicking us so hard in the balls of our feels that we break down crying... *points at "Friendship Is Magic! ... Unless You Are a Human" and my rather emotional comments on it*

l am EAGERLY looking forward to more stories from you, big or small... and you are inspiring me to resume work on my own story

reminds me of an old fic where the crusaders dig up some old artifact that puts numbers over everypony's heads.

the numbers are how many times they lie.

edit: Found it!


Mate, if I had the money right now I would PAY you to do ONE more chapter at least!

That is how much I love this story and the idea.

l agree, this is a story that BEGS for more chapters... l would LOVE to see Trixie and the FlimFlam brothers pulled in front of it..... it will either beep none stop or blow right up from overload

lets just say, there r word spoken and words unspoken...and wise is the one who bewares those adept in both languages...

Celestia glanced at Luna, then at Twilight, and a devilish smile filled her face again. “Twilight, you may hold on with the destruction of that thing for a while longer…”

Celestia, you don't know what carnage you've brought upon yourself and all in the room. You're giving the Alicorn of Food Love a blank check to go through everyone's personal and private lives to sniff out relationships, etc.

There is no being in existence that has enough mercy for your souls.

Who is James and Kleiner?

I meant like the movie fightclub, not like dog fights. I don't think fluttershy would sanction animal abuse.

we need more lie detector stories...:rainbowlaugh:

I think I'm going to investigate how they work to write some myself ...:rainbowlaugh:


ok, I'm not going to investigate, but I'm going to write something based on this ...:rainbowderp:


ok, I'll start writing something soon ...:trixieshiftleft:


ok, okay, I'm just going to wait for more stories to come out of the lie detecting machine ...:moustache:


stupid machine...:twilightangry2:



And no bit from Luna about how she is clearly NOT boffing the human? For shame!

I don't know why, but i feel like... just a tiny bit... that the justice system in Equestria is not great.

i d o n ' t k n o w w h y t h o u g h

Are we finna get a sequel?

This story was so funny! Its inspired me to get back to writing my own backlog!


... Oh screw you, you infernal box.

Rule number 1: The Doctor lies.

“Using your inherited cuteness to give unsuspecting creatures a heart attack?!”

“I always apologize afterward.”

I laughed so hard.

At least she knows

I'm very surprised James never tried to embarress Celestia even more by telling Luna about the whole pet name. Or maybe it was through Luna he found out?

All this Fic does is make me want to ogle the ladies of the Victoria's Secret catalogue ...

Someone's been reading Blank Page. :P

Yuuuuup. Think Candy Cane is referred as the "Alicorn of Food" in a few stories but it's highly amusing to me regardless.

I hope you continue this and do one for Shining and Cadence, maybe one for Spike and the Crusaders.

see i legit wanna see more of this with ocs and more canon characters in a light hearted sense
