The thing is, they're NOT original. Not in the slightest. Overly flowery prose is one of the major cliches of the fantasy genre in general. It's one thing if it's tongue-in-cheek, where the authors aren't taking themselves too seriously and the silliness is part of the intention behind it, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. People make the comparison to high school level writing because high school writers take themselves seriously but in reality don't have a clue what they're doing. There is no subtlety to high school level creative writing choices, and there is no subtlety to TSL's writing choices. The cheesy, overly long episode titles are just the latest example of this.
