Porque la combinación "hi" suena como "y":

Fuego y hielo.
Tierra y hierba.
Amor e indiferencia.
Listo e inteligente.

Pensaba que se debe usar "e" ahí porque la combinación "hi" siena como "y", pero escribiste "fuego y hielo". Quizás no lo estoy entiendo

Lo que puso Irmamar es que la "hi" de hielo suena como la "ll" de llama y no como "y" (la conjunción).

Así que es correcto fuego y hielo (fuego y llelo)

Well, not exactly like a "ll", but more similar to a "y" (i griega), even softer. In fact this is called "yod" and, phonetically, its symbol is /j/. Vowels i and u sometimes are semi-consonants or semi-vowels. It's the same in English. How do you pronounce the "e" of "the" before "universe"? Do you pronounce it in the same way than before "air"?

I think the issue is if in English "A universe or An Universe" is correct.
