Trick or Treat! Well, the Turks tricked and Soldier treated, but in the end Avalanche came away with the candy haul. They win the trophy this week with 10 points.
This week's prompt is #121 - Bulwer-Lytton
This week, you may write any type of drabble you like, but there is a twist. You must write it in the style of Bulwer-Lytton!
So, throw together your best dramatic flair, your redundancies, your confusing sentences and run-on sentences, you know, the ones that don't make sense in one reading but hit you like a freight train in the middle of the night when you are trying to sleep but can't because of how much caffeine that you had in the early hours before the chiming of the clock at the strike of twelve.
Write us a dark and stormy night at the Seventh Heaven or ShinRa headquarters or the strange little spaces that the Turks call home but don't admit to for all the cockroaches running in the walls like mice on a quest for peanut butter. Or hit us with a battle between foes so vengeful that you wouldn't think their feud would even make it to the battlefield.
Regardless of the scene that you paint, not with oils and acrylics that tend to dry out before you get off your lazy ass to use them, but with the words well crafted like that of a frenzied fan fiction writer that has had too much Mountain Dew, write us a drabble in the manner of Bulwer-Lytton. Give us your worst (and by happenstance, your best) in just 100 words.
And here is a link to those unfamiliar to Bulwer-Lytton: Wikipedia ahoy!Mod note:

Basically, all new prompts will be posted here whereas past prompts will be copied and pasted from here to there in the order that they were assigned. Does that even make sense? ><
