Purple prose is when the author of a story uses excessively flowery, extravagant language (prose) to describe a person, place, or thing. Passages in purple prose will often have excessive amounts of adjectives and adverbs.

In fanfiction, purple prose is sometimes called "urple prose", due to common spelling errors in fanfiction and the fact that it makes most readers want to throw up.
