The printer's devil came into our office last night.
But today he said:

  1. I am no evil (3)
  2. I never E ards (3)
  3. Ion LT fruits and vegetables (3)
  4. I did ner your room. (4)
  5. I didn't, Ouch, your door. (5)
  6. I am no cent (2)
  7. It the truth just now (3)

Can you find the missing words?

Note: This is my first attempt at crossword clues, so please give feedback.
Note: Some clues may have multiple answers.
Note: Do not ignore any of the tags.

    $\begingroup$ Any chance we can get an update on this? It's been a few days and I don't think anyone knows whether my answer is correct or incorrect. $\endgroup$ – hdsdv Aug 9 at 9:59

    $\begingroup$ #4 could be rot13(rirag) as well. $\endgroup$ – jafe Aug 7 at 12:40

    $\begingroup$ agreed! that is probably the intended solution, but i guess it's a good lesson for the creator - it's important not to have multiple equally valid solutions. $\endgroup$ – hdsdv Aug 7 at 16:17
  • $\begingroup$ @jafe Please do not ignore the "story" tag. $\endgroup$ – Scratch---Cat Aug 9 at 11:01

    $\begingroup$ It doesn't look to me as if hdsdv has ignored the [story] tag -- the answer here links with the (tiny) story contained in the original question, and maintains a thread of continuity within its resolutions of the seven clues. $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Aug 10 at 11:02

    $\begingroup$ (@Scratch---Cat) I agree with GarethMcCaughan. In addition, if this is NOT the answer, the question is likely too broad. There's no reason I can think of why this isn't a fully valid solution, and where multiple answers could fit, the puzzle is under-specified. A well-crafted puzzle will give enough information to rule in the intended solution while ruling out everything else. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Aug 10 at 19:10
