  • Sugata Mitra: The child-driven education | Video on

    There was a photo on the nightstand — Gwen, leaning over Rhys, arms wrapped around his shoulders.

    Oh, well then. Mostly-naked in Gwen's bed. He wasn't sure if that was better or worse than mostly-naked in a stranger's bed. Surely, though…after all this was Gwen…but on the other hand Jack had a weird thing for Gwen and it wasn't like Ianto hadn't noticed she was attractive and always smelled nice. He was only human. So, if he and Jack were both here, there was at least one logical conclusion he could draw, if he wanted to fully indulge in the horror of it.

    Oh god, Rhys was going to wring his neck.
