Take Me to Church

AJ Styles/Reader
1720 words; smut/explicit

Vague set-in-some-unspecified-time historical AU and priest/preacher AU.

Also the religious imagery in this is pretty overt, so please don’t read it if that might upset/offend you.

It’s always too hot in church, the air thick and heavy. The wooden pew is hard against your body, and droplets of sweat are inching down your spine in a steady trickle. You shift slightly as you try to concentrate on the words of Brother Styles’ sermon, aware that your best white cotton dress will show the damp.

You hear your mama’s voice in your head, telling you to sit up straight, and you put your shoulders back, taking strength from the words. She passed a few years ago, in an accident along with your daddy, and as an only child, you were left alone in the world. But it’s not so bad, as you’ve managed to make your way a little, finding work as a seamstress in the Ladies’ Fashion store in town.

Brother Styles was the one who put in a word for you, helped you get the job and find a room in a boarding house of good reputation. He was so kind to you after your parents died, a true gentleman. You listen to him speak now, pacing up and down the raised platform at the front of the church, warning of the fate that awaits all sinners: fire and hell and eternal damnation.

Gauze dress, ca. 1826-1827 by KSU Museum
Via Flickr:
White plain cotton gauze dress with yellow embroidery (A) and yellow silk shoulder brace (B). Dress with high waist, scoop neck, long sleeves with puffed shoulder, hem with 5 tucks alternating with embroidered wool sprigs, yellow silk bands at cuffs. Braces: yellow silk taffeta shoulder brace with tabs alternating on each side. As the 19th century progressed, the high waistline of the first decade began its descent to the natural waistline. At the same time the sleeves became fuller and the skirt began to widen. By the mid-1820s, the first leg of mutton sleeve of the century appeared as in this dress. English, attributed, ca. 1826-1827. Cotton gauze/silk. Silverman/Rodgers Collection, KSUM 1983.1.31ab.

“I wasn’t limited to the con- nes of a pattern. Not being educated, not being taught how to design, I was able to visualize in a completely di erent context. And I still seem able to draw upon the unconventional.”

A/N: So we have a few requests but I’ve had this idea for a while. We decided that Wednesdays will be for requests now and all the other stuff that comes from our brains will go up on Sundays still, so keep sending stuff in if you’d like posts on Wednesdays. Also you gotta love Blackpink. And Rosie. And balloons.


A girl sits on a bench with a balloon tied around her wrist, and all the boys walk around with needles. They tolerate her and her balloon, neither using their needles to sew the string to their own wrist as well or to pop it.

She wishes that she wasn’t so timid. That she could take her balloon and smack a boy with it to get his attention.

But she’s shy and worrisome and she can’t bear the thought of rejection. So on most days, like today, she sits on her bench and watches the boys that pass through the park. Usually they’re rambunctious and sometimes they will throw things in her direction: footballs, frisbees, but never their glances.
