It's a good fairy,but the killing itself is brutal and when I told other people how the fairy is killed they were repulsed,the very same people will watch violence on tv and not bat an eyelid.
According to the various "special victims", "cold case", etc., TV shows, it is not OK to kill a fairy.
If the story is for children, I wouldn't include a fairy being killed. It's too sad, better if the fairy just flew away to another land.
Read the original story, the little mermaid. She dies, but is handle well.
If the fairy story is for children then the answer might be different to a story for adults.
Fairy stories are often read to children at bedtime and a fairy being killed could lead to a sleepless night for a child and parents. Generations of children have grown up not wanting Tinkerbelle to fade away in the story of Peter Pan.
However if the fairy is in a fairy story adults and you really want to kill her off. . if it is part of the plot you need to check what purpose it serves. Also consider how and why you have her killed off in the story.... the only good of it that I can see is if she is saving someone or something important. Probably not much help but you must in the end write what you feel is correct for your story.
You can have a brutal death scene in any story (for adults) but make the readers feel how it is an important part of the story. Like the deaths of most of the soldiers in Saving Private Ryan. It may not make your readers happy that you killed someone good off but they will enjoy the over all story if they can understand the importance.
In the end it's your story, kill off anyone you wish.
Traditionally fairy are the spirits of the dead or the ancestors of the dead. So your question is redundant, fairy are dead by virtue of being fairy. Now pixies, sprites, nymphes, dryads, mermaids, angels, and girls may be another subject all together.
Let not kill the fairy .. let her disappear if the story needs.
Fairy stories can be for adults, and adults need some tension, so go ahead and kill off Tinkerbell. jael

I was told by a few gun fans that hammers kill more people than guns. Personally I could not beat a man into a hamburger. Or Hamburger hill would be grossly rewritten. If someone challenge you to death duel, would your choice weapon be a hammer or a gun? I rest my case. Trump speeches is Mr....
