After finishing off Mirmulnir with a superslick finishing animation, Irelith tells everybody to get back but nothing happens to the dragon
s body. I've seen videos where the dragon's flesh disintegrates leaving skeletal remains and you absorbing the soul but nothing is happening for me.

Guess you aren't the dragonborn after all.

Interesting twist.

It should auto unlock the shout instead of giving you the soul. The game is making sure you get the shout for a later quest.

How close are you to the dragon? You have to get up to it. Either that or reload?

Sorry, there are enough Dragonborn running around, you're not in the club.
I love when people yell "throw it!" when a player scoops up a ground ball in baseball, like the player isn't aware of the fact they need to throw it.

I've looted the body and danced around its corpse but to no avail. I just reloaded to kill him a third time and absolutely nothing is happening. Maybe I'll try fighting him in the daytime

No, you definitely absorb the first dragon's soul. It's just a glitch that sometimes happens with dragons where nothing happens after their death.

Yeah so after loitering the area for about an hour, the dragon's body is finally absorbed...by the ground: http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/650997180345878377/9325754AE7E681E07A8D947CDF3CF1402A12ED8D/

Not sure what to do next.
