Would james adopt Kara?
What is Sophia's last name?
When did Sophia's mother die?
How did Sophia & Kara end up in an East End apartment
(at 20 & 14 respectively)? According to your backstory,
Sophia was conceived in Venezuela. When did she and
Mom move to London? You also say that little sister Kara
moved out when Sophia left home... (when Sophia went
If Sophia's Mother was "gorgeous" and Kara looks like her
Mother, why did the kidnappers call her freckled and
TIMING Q's & HOW DID SOPHIA I.D. 007 AS DADDY?
If Sophia's mother met James in Venezuela 21 years ago while he was a "spy", then the 007 in your story has to be quite old. James Bond is usually given a detailed backstory for each incarnation - Scot, only child, orphaned at 11, some posh education/utilitarian education, Naval Carrer, Intelligence Career, then MI6 spy.
Daniel Craig's film backstory somewhat dovetails which your AU FIC in that Bond is orphaned at 11, then living with maiden Aunt in Kent, sent down from Eton at 13-14, attending Fettes College until 17-18, meanwhile also trained by Swiss mountaineer Oberhouser, and then Bond attends Britannia Royal Navy College. After which, Bond joins the Royal Navy, sea duty,, specializes in Naval Intelligence, then does active duty in Special Boat Service, finally moving up to become a commando in Special Forces, then recruited by RNR Defense Intelligence Group - in between missions Bond also studies part-time & takes several Firsts at Cambridge University in European & Oriental Languages. Then at around age 30 Bond is asked to join MI6 where he is trained in covert ops, espionage, interrogation, etc. After about 8 years James Bond as a Field Agent, bond is finally promoted by M to 00 status. (/- 38 years old). And thus, a legend is born.
[Note: MI6 Active Duty Retirement age has been cited variously as 44, 50, 'when not in peak physical fitness' & death.]
So, James Bond may have been a RNR DI Covert Ops Agent or a new MI6 Field Agent when he encountered Sophia's beautiful Mother in Venezuela but it is highly doubtful Bond was a '00'.
1) Why would James Bond disclose his profession to a British Expatriate Hooker he meets on the job in South America?!
2) How does unsophisticated 30-year-old Sophia track down James Bond merely possessing a rope bracelet & some stories? Did she do a DNA trace that alerted MI6?
3) Why would MI6 allow Sophia to meet Bond, who is such a valuable & covert national Asset? Acknowledging Sophia as Bond's biological daughter would be a major liability as your Fic's plot suggests.
4) How did Carlisle so quickly 'suss out' that James Bond had an illegitimate daughter without also knowing any specifics like age/name? Recall your comments that Sophia looks a lot like James while young half-sister Kara does not. The info leak obviously did not come from the civilian side else Carlisle would have snatched the correct girl. So, MI6 must have a high-up information leak. Carlisle kidnapped the girl he thought was Bond's daughter on the same day Bond actually met her! There was no time lag. That is worrisome!
FYI: There are eight divers & in depth James Bond Biographies (literary & film) found at Wikipedia link:

I was watching Skyfall with my own father when a fanfiction plot popped into my head. Bond has had fleeting affairs with so many women, what if he had a daughter? What if his daughter tracked him down many years later? What if she had a thing for that cute, young Quartermaster?
In all my laziness, I would never write such a story myself, so I decided to look up fanfiction for Skyfall via google. Lo and behold, I came across this fic, whose summary promised everything I imagined, and more.
After reading this first chapter I am quite impressed. I can already tell how I'm going to spend the rest of my night.
