I know it's horribly unprofessional in literature other than comics, but just this once...

For those who don't know, I'm writing a middle grade sci-fi being published as a blog on bgg.

Many chapters into the future of that book, what I'm writing at present, is a scene where a character is being busted out of a brick and mortar prison. The character hears this noise that makes her jump, and it's the sound of a hole being blasted through the wall.

There would be a crumbling sound along with a crash from the explosion, and quite possibly a whistling from a hearing implant the character happens to have.

How do I write the appropriate onomatopoeia for what she hears?

Maybe a FWOOMP! for the blast and a CRSSSSH for the crumbling? The whistling might just be EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE shrinking in size as it fades

so, all together, FWOOeeeeCRSSSH?

I want it all in one horrible sound. The shrieking implant is optional, but would be cool to work in.

by the way, this is what I came up with before I got here. "CARRRTHWOOOSH!" but not sure if it was remotely close.

...124 to run fleeing from the mountain. ...125 to use a rope to climb the steep cliff. ...126 to quickly cast "summon stairs." ...127 to dodge under the falling rocks.
