Flavor Text and Stylistic Differences

There has been some disagreement on the style of flavor text to use for Aelsif. We both agree on having a short description of the item first, then making the flavor text come from an in-universe source, but I prefer flavor texts that are made to be more entertaining and often relate to other item descriptions as to build a narrative between them, he prefers longer ones that get right to the point and hammer it home, with information more applicable to gameplay. I'm not even sure they're that different of approaches, really, or that we need to pick one, but we just got done arguing about it so we'd appreciate some input on the matter and examples are below. Two from Aelsif in my style, two from his space fantasy (that STILL hasn't been named) in his style.
