This seems a reasonably compelling interpretation of ‘fibre’, which for many may be a less common word than ‘vibe’. I heard someone use this today, or at least I thought I did.
“I hate you with every vibe of my being! This engagement is over. I’ll send my cousins to get my things.”
Seriously, I hate Comcrap with every vibe of my being … but this is actually a decent idea.
She hated him with every vibe of her being. That pesky human.
But as soon as he saw those hungry amethyst eyes, electricity sparked throughout every vibe of his being and he sobered up in an instant.
I think it’s plausible that “vibe” has replaced “fibre” in these examples. “Fibre of my being/body/soul/frame/nature” is a fairly set idiom.
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
