This is not yet a book, I don't intend it to ever even approach such a thing. For now, it's a language and some culture.
Another key note in this venture is the presence of stringy life forms. "life fibers" (heh) are the only form of life on all of three worlds in a strange star system far off in another arm of the milky way. On this world, as it was, the original strings exterminated all bacterial life, and then assumed the same relative role in the world as bacterial life did on earth, eventually interweaving into larger life forms.
The local creatures, at present, are mostly shape-shifters in at least some way. Most notable, besides the dominant species, are examples like foxes, and polypi.
