I'm looking for a one way ticket from OSL to MCO on the 21st of October, I've used airfare.com on my one way US-EU tickets, but won't work on a EU-US. I will be moving back to MCO on the 21st of October, and can only travel on that day...

If you can not find any suitable oneway-fares, have a look to bbok a retun flight.
Outbound OSL to MCO on 21-OCT and a return minimum a week later (play with dates a bit).
Assuming you are a U.S.-citizen, you will not get into trouble with the INS if you let your return segment sinply pass (make it a no-show). Might be the cheaper way to get home ...
A quick search for a return trip (outbound on 21-OCT, return 28-OCT) got a quote of 635 EUR on BA/AA via LHR and ORD -- Second option: CO via EWR for around 725 EUR.
A standard oneway flight is quoted around 950 EUR on BD/UA via LHR and IAD, so at least from the quotes I get, its 300+ EUR more expensive.
Switching to TPA instead of MCO apparently makes no sense fare-wise.
Another option, but to RSW, not MCO !
Two oneway segments:
1. Roundtrip OSL-DUS-OSL (21-OCT / fiktive return on 28-OCT): on LH 3159 0955-1145h @ 130 EUR
2. Oneway DUS-RSW AB1908 1340-1810h @ 309 EUR
Total: ca. 440 EUR.
