So i hit promos for Silver 1 and lost them, so i get 80lp. I win and get to 97 lp, but then the next game I lose and fall to 77 lp. What does lp depend on? I have over a 51% win rate which leaves me confused :O

That means your MMR is lower than Silver 1, but you league hasn't caught up with it yet. If you keep a good W/L ratio in silver 1, this will go away

Essentially, riot thinks that you're overrated, so they're pushing you down via LP, since they're trying to silmultaneously give you a 50% win rate, so that you will continue to enjoy playing the game.

The alternative would be to continuously lose to people that you're rated similarly to, which would be a really disheartening game.

(I just wasted like a full minute of my life writing this post. Lame.)
