Ok, I have some guesses!

Off Script - Mish
Torah - epimetheus
The Mildest Glancing Blow - The Carcosan Herald
Out of Time - SueC
Last March of King Charles - Tettsuo

Hmm...I have fewer guesses than I thought I'd have.

Torah - epimetheus
Stormbringer - ArrowInTheBowOfTheLord
Sky Burial - bdcharles or maybe undead_av
Valley of Decision - BornForBurning
Earnest - maybe undead_av (maybe undead_av wrote everything. It's a conspiracy!)

Olly Buckle

Off Script struck me as an American with a strong local dialect, I am not conversant enough with American accents to say where, but the phrasing and occasional mis-spelling, I could practically hear them.

I must be quite the amnesiac. I don’t seem to recall writing or submitting a story for this month’s prompt.

While I would be happy to take credit for the entry, I object to anyone thinking I would use the word “skedaddled.”
