Dwimordene's Standard Disclaimer (envision it at the top of every LOTR fanfic that I write):

I'm not JRRT, nor related to him in any way. Thus I own nothing, and I owe much, but I promise to return all of Mr. Tolkien's characters to him more or less intact (as talent allows, and with apologies for the 'less' part). I make no money and intend no harm. Thanks for not suing.
