In an All Human AU, characters who are canonically non-human are now humans, with corresponding changes to their backstories. This is often seen in the Buffyverse with vampires (such as Angel, Spike, or Drusilla) being rendered human.

trobadora asked in a LiveJournal post about the attraction of All-Human AUs, and lots of people gave lots of answers that ran the gamut from badfic to easier to write to separating individual from identity.

In High School AUs, characters who are canonically immortal or otherwise unaging are most often either older high school students or in college.
