IF about human beings - an IFDB Poll

I'm looking for IF about human beings and human struggles in a more or less common setting. No zombies, vampires, orcs, demons, robots, slimy aliens, gods or monsters of any kind; just plain human beings please. Yes, I know many works employ some poetic license to depict other fellow humans as some of those, but I want human stories.

I believe it'd be the exact opposite of this old poll:

namekuseijin says: not particularly fond of this, but yes, very humane. Short wrote many terrific works of IF, but I fear most of them fall outside of the scope of this poll. I really wish I could put Counterfeit Monkey here, because there's inherently a very human story underlying all the puzzles, mechanical devices and the rich fantasy setting, even though people often overlook past it...
