Write out the Wilhem Scream.

  1. Taken from my Unsightful Survey.

    So you're in an RP, and your character is plummeting off something or horribly wounded, and in your mind the best possible sound that he could make is the Wilhelm Scream. But how do you write it out? As in, what does the Wilhelm Scream look like when written. Or something. You get what I mean.

    How would you write out the Wilhelm Scream?
    Me, I'm kind of found of, "AaaAHAUGH."
     
  2. I like typing it out, rather trying to imitate the sound..like "A piercing scream of agony" or "A fatal, echoing scream as he fell down the cliff". In the game Shining Force they always used "AIIIIEEEEEEEEE' Which I thought was always kinda weird. I guess if I felt it was important to actually type out the noise, I would go with "Arrrrggghhhaaaaa" Something like that.
     
  3. I'm like October, I'll not do dialogue for screams most of the time... XD

    Buuut when I do, it depends on of it's a guy character or a girl!

    A girl would be all "AAAAIIIIIEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAA!"

    But a guy would be "AAAAAAARRRRRRRRAAGGGHHHH!!!!!"
     
  4. WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT GENERIC SCREAMS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ONE DISTINCTIVE SCREAM. HOW WOULD YOU WRITE OUT THAT ONE DISTINCTIVE SCREAM?

    And none of those things that you posted are the Wilhelm Scream. >:(
     
  5. Let me try my hand at this.

    "AAAaaaaAAAUUGHHH!"
     
  6. oooo-AAAWWW
