Asgore wants to comfort Frisk, but Toriel still doesn't like or trust him, and he's not about to keep walking when her glare tells him to stay put. Not that she really thinks he'd harm Frisk at this point, but old resentments die hard.
Sans, meanwhile, is indulging his habit of "when in doubt, do nothing".
I'll admit, I'm kind of internally gloating about how some of these panels turned out - especially Asgore's puppy eyes and the way he looks from above, how Mettaton turned out (my first really successful metal shading!), and that scene transition at the end. This was my first time drawing Mr. Fabulous Robot With A Surprisingly Complex Sprite, and it took hours, but it was worth it.
Next week, we return to the land of stony-faced Frisk, black-framed panels, and me having way fewer characters' locations to keep track of. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it down to as sane a length as I did with this one.
