Passing special characters in fmp url param

Hoping someone either has a more elegant solution than I can come up with, or has already done the gruntwork for something inelegant that works...

 

Within an fmp url, the script parameter I need to pass may include special characters (i.e. @, #, !, etc.). This appears to "break" my link.

 

If I use GetAsURLEncode for the link, the link works, but the script I'm calling doesn't "decode" the parameter.

 

The parameter I'm passing is user-entered and free text.

 

At this point, I'm considering doing replaces for every special character I can think of in the url, then swapping them all back in the script. This feels like a rabbit hole, or at best a terrible hack, so I'm hoping someone has a better idea?
