Thanks all for the votes and the congratulations.

Now I have a theory, based on a couple of leads.
Firstly, 'Out of the comfort zone...into the fire' shares a strikingly similar dialogue pattern to Paranoid Marvins latest entry in the 75.
And secondly, both 'Out of the comfort zone...' and 'No need to get excited, its just a story' were posted on the very same day and both contain the word 'fiddlesticks'.
Therefore I conclude that both were, infact, written by Paranoid Marvin himself.

I could (and probably am) be wrong, but I have somehow come to identify the word 'fiddlesticks' with AnRoinUltra. When I look for other stories that bear his characteristics (his naming conventions, for instance) I find only 3 (in a quick survey.) Sum: 2 + 3 = 5. Usually.
For those interested in Guessing, here is the list of authors and the number of submissions for each:
AnRoinnUltra 5
Ah! Confirmed! It is 5 indeed.

'Out of the comfort zone...into the fire' was written by paranoid marvin, but not the other guess. Good start (y)

Congratulations therapist! And congratulations to therapist for guessing my (probably least obvious) entry. It did make me smile to see another 'fiddlesticks' in another entry on the same day!:ROFLMAO:

I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to guessing authors, but I did think that JS Wigg might have written 'Time to Wake Up'.
