1 Work in Remix Redux 10: X Marks the Spot

From Cosmic_llin's "Poker Face":
She could have won every time, of course. Occasionally she stopped worrying about it, got into the swing of it and cleaned up. They would tease then, gently, as she scooped up her chips and grinned at them. Never mind that she could beat Data, who was a blank to her empathic senses. Never mind that Will had learned exceptionally well the Betazoid techniques for mental shielding that she had taught him for use in dangerous situations, but which worked just as well to make sure that, when she tried to read him, his mind gave away as little as his poker face. She won because she was reading their minds. Of course . . . . She stopped going so much, after a while. They were all secretly relieved. Except that, to her, it wasn’t a secret.
