It's the Christmas season after the Netherfield party quit the estate. I've read one or two other mash-ups based on these two stories, and this one is more Pride and Prejudice than Christmas Carol. (That's an observation; neither a criticism nor a praise. It's just different from the others I've read.)
Darcy doesn't develop any Scrooge-like characteristics. No ghosts come to visit him, although he keeps thinking he sees Miss Elizabeth Bennet at the social gatherings he attends and feels disappointment when they're not her.
Instead, Darcy has some very disturbing dreams on Christmas Eve. They go from bad to worse, as he gets visions of Jane being seriously ill, then he dreams of what may be going on between Elizabeth and Mr. Wickham back in Hertfordshire with her ignorance about the scoundrel's true character. When Darcy goes to sleep a third time, he gets visions of his own potential future that have him waking up in a cold sweat.
I love this different approach. It's also a nice touch for Elizabeth to have a significant dream of her own. Great characterizations, with Darcy and Elizabeth both gaining a different perspective from their dreams.
Great Christmas Pride and Prejudice reading!
